Alameda is often thought of as “A City of Homes and Beaches”. While we certainly are proud of our Victorian neighborhoods and our long stretches of golden sand, we know that this island city is more than just a pretty place.
Keeping One Island on the Future
Alameda was a great vacation destination for Californians in the early 20th century. 100 years later, and we still have plenty packed onto our shores to keep us entertained.
Nostalgia junkies bask in our renovated relics such as the historic Alameda movie theatre, famed soda shop style Tucker’s Ice Cream, or our authentic American diner Ole’s Waffle Shop. Those who are more “spirited” revel in the unique flavors found on the former Navy base, such as Rock Wall Wine Company, Faction Brewing, and St.George Spirits. Anyone wanting to escape the bustle of the metropolis next door can find tranquility while strolling along the miles of flat trails in Shoreline park.
But above all else, Alameda is an innovative leader in setting and working towards environmentally-conscious goals. We take responsibility for our impact on the planet and, as a community, we have committed to achieving big changes before the year 2040. We’ve set in motion a plan to reach net zero greenhouse gas emissions. Within the next 20 years, we’re going to ensure that any impact we make is a positive one.
Solar Energy is Part of the Plan
Switching to solar seems like a natural step forward for us in Alameda. Solar power is a sustainable, renewable resource that is widely used in the Bay Area. Here in Alameda, we enjoy an average of 259 days of full sun each year — over fifty days above the national average!
Installing solar panels on your rooftop is the most beneficial, since power is generated on site and does not require connecting to a distant solar farm. Pairing your solar panels with a solar storage battery system takes it a step further and allows your home or business to run exclusively on solar energy, eliminating the use of fossil fuels entirely.
By using solar, Alameda residents are stretching on towards the goal of achieving city-wide net zero greenhouse gas emissions.
Having a property powered by solar energy can also mean significant financial savings. The money saved by reducing (or even cutting out) a costly electric bill can make a lot of room in any monthly budget. Being immune to PG&E blackouts means never losing an hour of productivity due to power outages. And local and federal tax incentives are still available in 2021 for Northern California residents to enjoy.
