Washtenaw County Board Of Commissioners Want To Make Changes To Its Carbon Neutrality Plan

Aug 5, 2020

The Washtenaw County Board of Commissioners will meet Wednesday night and discuss a resolution that, if approved, would impact the county’s carbon neutrality goal.  

The board wants to change the county’s carbon neutrality goal from 2035 to 2030.  Part of that plan would include replacing all interior light fixtures in county-owned buildings with LED lights to reduce the carbon footprint by 30%.  Board Chair Jason Morgan supports the resolution.

Board Chair Jason Morgan: It would also direct the county administration to bring back a large solar project for the board to approve by the end of the year.

The LED project would cost the county $2.5 million.
