The city of Ketchum and Blaine County are aiming for 75% of their energy used in municipal operations to be clean by 2025.

“The community adopted very ambitious clean energy goals. We’re on a short timeline, so our first order of business is to try to find a path forward for that,” Blaine County Sustainability Manager Lynne Barker said at a Nov. 21 meeting with Ketchum City Council.

By 2030, the city and county hope to be using 100% clean energy for municipal operations. By 2035, the plan aims for 100% clean energy use by the community at large. By 2045, the city and county hope to be completely off non-renewable energy in all forms, including their vehicles.
