The Chicago City Council on Wednesday unanimously voted to commit to 100% renewable energy by 2035, making it the largest U.S. city thus far to do so.

The Mayor’s Office Sustainability Team will be responsible for developing a citywide transition plan for 100% clean energy by December 2020. The resolution also calls for complete electrification of the Chicago Transportation Authority (CTA)’s bus fleet by 2040.

This effort is championed by the Ready For 100 Chicago Collective, which includes leaders from various environment-facing organizations like Sierra Club and People for Community Recovery. “It is through bold, local action that we can enable meaningful participation and cultivate strong benefits for our local communities throughout this process,” said Kyra Woods, organizer of Ready For 100 Chicago Collective, in a statement.
