City of Lancaster Joins Global
Campaign for 100% Renewable
Energy at International Conference
City of Lancaster Mayor R. Rex Parris shed light once again on the importance of renewable energy resources and the positioning of his home city as a world leader in shifting how communities manage their present and future energy assets.
Mayor Parris joined some of the most accomplished people from all over the world at the Pathways to 100% Renewable Energy Conference in San Francisco.
Organized by the Renewables 100 Policy Institute, the charge for this gathering of worldly experts across numerous agencies, councils, businesses and municipalities is to study, collaborate and advance the global shift to 100% renewable energy.
Flanked by leaders in energy, research, consulting, education, innovation, and even a Nobel Prize winner, Mayor Parris brought Lancaster to the forefront of this world stage to address how local communities and regions can shift to 100% renewable energy and beyond.
“Net zero is attainable and inevitable for all of us,” said Lancaster Mayor R. Rex Parris. “It is not a matter of if, but when and how the 100% renewable energy future will become reality. This inaugural conference is yet another testament to the direction in which we all must move.”
During his presentation, Mayor Parris emphasized that growth in the renewable energy realm isn’t about having deep pockets with which to fund research and projects.
As a modest municipality and a mid-sized desert city, Lancaster well exceeds more affluent cities such as San Jose and San Diego in the generation of “solar watts per capita.” San Diego provides 38 watts per capita, while San Jose boasts 61 watts per capita.
The City of Lancaster more than doubles the latter with 177 watts per capita. Parris attributes this proof in numbers to the City’s natural resources.
The City of Lancaster has set the path to renewable energy transformation ablaze over the last few years as it runs full speed toward its goal of being the Solar Capital of the World.
The City’s advantageous geographical positioning which provides intense sun most of the year, coupled with its vast land availability, makes it a uniquely valuable location in the alternative energy arena.
Furthermore, the progressive leadership of Lancaster has insisted on exemplifying a no-holds-barred approach to doing business and thinking outside of established “norms” regarding city operations.
“We will move mountains for any organization which wishes to launch their move toward 100% renewable energy in Lancaster’s backyard,” Parris stated. “Partnerships are what pave the way to success; partnerships and persistence. We invite everyone to trail blaze with us into the future.”
The City of Lancaster was exceptionally well-received at the Pathways’ international platform. Mayor Parris had invigorating private discussions with Renewables 100 Policy Institute Founder, Angelita M. Galiteva; Stanford Senior Fellow and Woods Institute Director of Atmosphere/Energy Program, Mark Z. Jacobson; and San Francisco Mayor Edwin Lee, among others.
