There are nearly 2000 munis across the country. These utilities manage about 100 million buildings, are responsible for about 56,000 megawatts (MW) of energy generation capacity, and serve about 49 million customers. Additionally, about 86% of muni’s electricity comes from dirty sources – including about 56% of electricity coming from coal, 20% from gas, about 13% from hydro, about 8% from petroleum; 2% from biomass, and less than 1% from wind and solar combined.

Climate Cabinet Education’s guidebook will help public power leaders use dollars provided by the Inflation Reduction Act to drive down these numbers, lower pollution emission rates, and cut customers’ utility costs nationwide.
