The Challenge

Climate Action – Climate Change – Global Warming!

 Part Solution

Quest for Net Zero 2030 – Decarbonization – Transition to Clean-Renewable Energy – Worldwide De-carbonization via clean-renewable energy.


At best, dire – according to actions taken or not on the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal #13 (SDG #13) – “take urgent action to combat climate change and its impact.”

Many climate change impacts are already felt at the current 1.2 °C (2.2 °F) level of warming. Additional warming will increase these impacts and can trigger tipping points, such as the melting of the Greenland ice sheet.[10] Under the 2015 Paris Agreement, nations collectively agreed to keep warming “well under 2 °C”. However, with pledges made under the Agreement, global warming would still reach about 2.7 °C (4.9 °F) by the end of the century.[4] Wikipedia

Our Part

To help equitably deploy and accelerate the transition to clean renewable energy in Illinois. There are tremendous opportunities for distributed generation (on-site solar) and adaptive re-use of Brownfield sites (contaminated sites) for clean-renewable energy.

Our goal is to partner with corporate America, community intermediaries, educational institutions, federal and local governments in accelerating the transition to clean renewable energy, with emphasis on Disadvantaged, Underserved and or Communities of Color and their institutions. Consider the following:

1. A new report by Environment America says there are more than 450,000
warehouses in America. In total, they have nearly 16.4 billion square feet of
rooftop space that could be used for solar systems. The rooftops of
American warehouses built before 2019 have the potential to generate
185.6 terawatt-hours of solar electricity each year, enough to power almost
19.4 million average homes. California, Florida, Illinois, Texas, and Georgia
have the largest warehouse solar generation potential; and

2. Using renewable energy criteria developed in collaboration with the
National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), EPA has pre-screened over
190,000 sites for their renewable energy potential. As part of this effort, EPA
collaborated with state agencies from California, Colorado,
Connecticut, Florida, Hawaii, Illinois, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts,
Minnesota, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Oregon,
Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Texas, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wisconsin.
Site screening was performed in August 2021 (RE-Powering America’s Land |

Given this huge opportunity, our goal is to partner with corporate America, energy
funds, engineering, procurement and construction (EPC), and operating and
maintenance (OE) companies in equitably deploying clean-renewable energy:

  • Commercial-scale (on-site) electrification of business parks, data, and fulfillment centers, community/educational institutions, municipal   buildings and warehouses, and
  • Utility-scale (solar farms) re-purposing America’s Brownfields (contaminated sites).
Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure
  • In preparation for the expected increase in transition to Electric Vehicles (EVs) and the expected demand for charging infrastructure,
  • Our goal is to install EV charging infrastructure at strategic sites, byways, highways, offices, and other select locations – essentially where people live, work, shop, stay, and travel.
