Arlington’s Community Energy Plan (CEP) is a long-term vision for transforming how we generate, use, distribute, and store energy in the County. It is a climate strategy that highlights plans for resiliency, adaptation, and mitigation, and helps facilitate planning across all county departments. In 2019, the Arlington County Board adopted a sweeping update to the Community Energy Plan that sets Arlington on a path to becoming a carbon-neutral community by 2050. Interim milestones include:
- 100% of Arlington’s electricity will be from renewable sources by 2035
- County Government operations to achieve 100% renewable energy by 2025 (accomplished in 2023)
