Developing a renewable energy strategy for Sitka a top priority for Sustainability Commission in coming year

Developing a community-wide renewable energy strategy is the top priority for Sitka’s new Sustainability Commission. The recently-formed commission is all-volunteer, but it has its own staff member in City Hall. Additional plans for the next two years include diverting Sitka’s waste stream, which is currently barged off-island, and electrifying the city’s fleet of vehicles.
