Evanston's Energy Future

Press Enter to show all options, press Tab go to next option

Everyone in Evanston uses energy whether to charge their phone, cook a meal or wash their hands. How energy is used can impact the air we breathe, our utility bills and the environment through pollution and climate change. Those considerations are particularly important because the Chicago region as a whole has lower air quality partially because of pollution released from vehicles and industry exhaust.

For people in Evanston, energy costs can make it even harder to meet monthly bills and housing expenses. In Evanston, 40% of all households are housing cost burdened and part of that burden is caused by energy costs. Energy affects all of us. 

The City of Evanston wants to hear what your priorities are for Evanston’s energy future to help us improve the air we breathe, lower utility bills, support healthier cleaner jobs and achieve 100% renewable energy to fight the climate crisis.
