About Pasadena 100

Who We Are

Pasadena 100 is a coalition of local non-profit and non-partisan organizations and individuals that advocate for our city to stop using fossil fuels (coal, natural gas, and oil) to make our electricity.

What is our concern?

Rising temperatures, fires, extreme storms, floods, ocean acidification, water scarcity, and respiratory illnesses, harm our lives now. If we don’t stop burning coal and natural gas, the greenhouse gases they emit will cause irreparable harm to our children and future generations.

What do we want?

Our city-owned utility, Pasadena Water & Power (PWP), currently uses coal and gas for the majority of the electricity that it provides. The City Council recently set a policy goal of 100% carbon-free electricity by 2030 in response to Pasadena 100 efforts and public support. We now want PWP and the City Council to make and approve concrete plans to transition to 100% carbon-free electricity by 2030.

Why now?

This year, 2023, PWP is planning for the next decade in a state-mandated Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) process. They will model several energy usage scenarios, each with energy provided from different sources, and bring these scenarios to the City Council. The City Council will then choose one of the plans. We want the City Council to vote on a plan that will provide Pasadena with 100% carbon-free energy by 2030.

For the sake of our children and grandchildren, and for the quality of our lives, join Pasadena 100 in calling on our City Council and PWP to provide 100% carbon-free energy by 2030.
