Tracking Progress On Our Goals

The Austin Energy Resource, Generation, and Climate Protection Plan (pdf) outlines the goals we have set, and are presently on track to meet by the year 2030.

Austin Energy's utility goals are to:

  • Achieve 1200 MW through energy efficiency and demand response measures.
  • Ensure >1% of MWH sales equates to MWH energy efficiency.
  • Provide for 375 MW of local solar with 200 MW being customer-sited.
  • Achieve a level of 93% carbon-free generation.

Austin Energy is responsible for and committed to the design, implementation, and evaluation of these goals through our rebate programs and offerings as well as our outreach and education.
