Atlanta leaders want to power the city with 100 percent clean energy by 2035. Can it be done?
Can a growing urban center of Atlanta’s size really part ways with fossil fuels in the next 17 years? Yes, experts say. But it won’t be easy. It'll take a combined effort with local businesses and energy providers such as Georgia Power, the state’s largest utility and the sole electricity provider for metro Atlanta.
By the numbers: Atlanta second among cities for electric car sales
Atlanta and San Francisco rarely share top billing in any kind of ranking, but when it comes to electric car sales, the ATL is second only to the City by the Bay. San Franciscans may adopt the energy-saving cars thanks to do-gooding environmentalism (and California’s high gas prices), but Atlantans choose the vehicles for decidedly more pragmatic reasons: hefty tax incentives, cheap electricity, and—most alluring to many—permission to drive solo in the HOV lane.
