The California city of Menlo Park, with a population of approximately 36,000 people, wants to become the first U.S. city to achieve carbon neutrality. Through a historic partnership with climate tech company BlocPower in June, the city is phasing out fossil fuel usage in its buildings. The old system will be replaced with renewable energy, a program expected to bring full electrification by 2030.

The partnership will also see to installation of EV charging stations and battery storage throughout the city. BlocPower adds that the program will create hundreds of green jobs for residents. Menlo Park is also working with local nonprofit Menlo Spark to raise $35 million to support the program.
