Climate Action Plan (CAP)
A Climate Action Task Force met over a two-year period and their work culminated in the creation of the Town’s Climate Action Plan (CAP) (PDF) which was accepted by the Town Council as an advisory document in 2014. The CAP is Moraga’s long-term plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from daily activities of residents, local businesses, and municipal operations, and contains strategies related to energy efficiency, land use, transportation, water, wastewater and solid waste management.
Since 2014, the Town has completed a number of projects that have resulted in reductions in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
- Land Use and Transportation
- Municipal Operations
- Residential and Commercial Energy Use
- Solid Waste
- Water and Wastewater
NEW - Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Stations
There are now three electric vehicle public charging stations in Moraga open 24 hours a day. The charging stations, each with two Level 2 chargers, can be found at the Town offices at 329 Rheem Boulevard, at the Commons Park, and at Chase Bank at 1299 School Street. The Town’s chargers use SemaConnect software and the cost is between $0.31 and $0.53 per kilowatt hour depending upon the time of day. The ChargePoint chargers at Chase Bank are currently free to the public.
Are you and your family up for a fun but important challenge?
Sustainable Contra Costa (SCOCO) has developed the Cleaner Contra Costa Challenge program to educate and inspire people that live and/or work in Contra Costa County to make sustainable choices in their everyday lives. SCOCO is using the Challenge to connect County residents and workers with accessible, low-cost actions they can take to save water, energy and money in their homes and workplaces. The Challenge allows participants to form groups and create friendly competitions around efforts to achieve these savings. It’s both fun and educational, but at the same time it is also a collaborative community engagement program with a robust online resource where participants can measure their household’s carbon footprint, learn how to reduce their impact on the environment, save money, and track progress with other participants or groups.
