Energy and Conservation Action Strategy
This Energy and Conservation Action Strategy (ECAS) has been created for Vacaville in compliance with State requirements that address the reduction of major sources of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The ECAS is a detailed, long-range strategy to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and achieve greater conservation of resources with regards to transportation and land use, energy, water, solid waste, and open space. Collectively addressing community development and conservation through these lenses will help Vacaville remain attractive, prosperous, and adaptive to social, political, and environmental changes.
Implementation of the ECAS will guide Vacaville’s actions through a series of communitywide and municipal GHG emissions reduction measures to decrease the city’s contribution to GHG emissions. Communitywide GHG emission reduction measures are exclusively aimed to increase energy independence; reduce spending on gas, electricity, and water; and improve air quality from non-City operations. Municipal GHG emission reduction measures apply exclusively to City operations.
