FY 23-25_ Climate Action - transparentAs part of our commitment to a sustainable future, the Napa City Council has continued to prioritize Climate Action & Sustainability for the 2023/24 and 2024/25 fiscal years and beyond.

In line with this commitment, the Council passed a climate emergency resolution, highlighting the urgent need for action. 

To drive our climate action efforts, we have recently welcomed a dedicated Management Analyst to our team. This expert will play a vital role in coordinating and implementing the city's ambitious plans to mitigate the effects of climate change. With their expertise and strategic guidance, we aim to achieve our climate goals efficiently and effectively.

We are committed to promoting energy efficiency and electrification. One of our primary objectives is to encourage the widespread adoption of electric vehicles (EVs). To accomplish this, we are actively sourcing grant funding and assessing opportunities to install EV charging stations in various locations, including public parking areas. By expanding the charging infrastructure, we aim to facilitate the transition to clean transportation alternatives, reducing emissions and improving air quality in our city.

Through a range of incentives, we aim to accelerate the adoption of energy-efficient technologies and cleaner energy sources throughout our community.  The City of Napa is utilizing $85,000 in American Rescue Act (ARPA) funding to help landscapers fund the cost of a battery-powered leaf blower by offering rebates of up to $1,000 on qualifying purchases, while funding lasts.

To provide a clear roadmap for sustainable development and climate action, we are developing comprehensive policies. These policies will outline guidelines and standards for responsible practices and decision-making processes aligned with our climate goals. We will be applying for grants and exploring partnerships to secure financial resources for implementing impactful projects. These resources will enable us to pursue innovative initiatives that will make a tangible difference in reducing our carbon footprint and building a more sustainable future.
