Fleet Policies and Composition

Atlanta has made a commitment to convert 20 percent of its municipal fleet to electric vehicles by 2020, however, the city does not have any fuel efficiency requirements for its public fleet vehicles in place. Additionally, this city has a green fleet policy, and it is reducing the size of its fleet by revoking vehicle take-home policies and undertaking a car share program. The Mayor’s Office of Resilience is currently working with departments to assess and discuss opportunities to consider EVs and charging stations while taking advantage of the DOE SEAFDP grant to cover 40% of the incremental cost of purchasing an EV compared to a standard ICE vehicle. Atlanta’s municipal fleet is composed of 2% efficiency vehicles, including hybrid, plug-in hybrid, and battery electric vehicles.

Public Lighting

Atlanta has not adopted the lighting control provisions of the Model Lighting Ordinance and does not have any similar policies in place. Georgia Power’s streetlight conversion program has converted over 50 percent, totaling around 37,000, of their leased streetlights to LEDs. To date 7.2% of the City of Atlanta owned streetlights have been replaced with LEDs. The City is currently in a pilot project to evaluate technologies to upgrade all city-owned lights to LED and include cameras, spot-shutters, and sensors integrated in a network of intelligent nodes that will collect data for distribution to the City's police department, transportation office, and other end users. City-owned streetlight conversions are tracked in the city's GIS system.

Onsite Renewable Systems

In October of 2017, the City awarded a contract for the installation of solar panels on City-owned properties, making it the largest municipal program in Georgia. The facilities included in the program have been selected after extensive vetting for solar potential, financial feasibility, and structural integrity. There are 24 project sites comprising mostly of recreation centers and fire stations and represent up to 1.25MW of solar power.

Inclusive Procurement

Atlanta has developed multiple diversity inclusion strategies for inclusive procurement. The Small Business Opportunity Program and the Equal Business Opportunity Program promote procurement from women and minority businesses, as well as small business enterprises.

City-wide water efficiency and goals

Although the energy and water utilities do not offer joint efficiency programs, Georgia Power Company does offer water-saving fixtures and controllers on the marketplace. The Department of Watershed Management also offers water efficiency programs, such as the water saver kits available to water customers. Each kit contains a showerhead, faucet aerator, and toilet-leak-detection tablets. The City of Atlanta offers rebates for high-efficiency toilets for residential and multifamily units. Through an innovative program called Care and Conserve, the City offers water bill payment assistance, plumbing repair assistance, and water conservation counseling to approximately 500 low-income households annually. The City has also launched a Water Efficient Restaurant Certificate Program to help restaurants become more water efficient through audits and by providing them with free faucet aerators.

The City has also adopted a goal of achieving a 20% reduction in per capita citywide water consumption below its 2009 levels by 2020. In 2017, it achieved a 10% reduction per capita.

Water plant efficiency and self-generation

Under the Power to Change initiative, all city facilities, including the Department of Watershed Management facilities, are striving to meet a 20% energy reduction below 2009 levels by 2020. Most of the energy used by the Department derives from its treatment facility operations – 94 percent of DWM’s 191,000 MWh of energy use in 2016 was consumed at these sites. The Department’s current capital improvement program (CIP) includes several projects that will result in significant offsets to the 191,000 MWh consumed annually across all of its facilities. Two large-scale energy-saving performance contracts with Schneider Electric and NORESCO, planned for completion in 2019 and 2021, are expected to deliver energy savings in excess of 10,000 MWh annually through various energy conservation measures at multiple DWM water and wastewater treatment facilities. Many other projects in the Department’s CIP include energy savings components as well. With all the investments in its current CIP, it is estimated DWM may realize up to 55,000 MWh in annual energy savings by 2023, a sizable step towards its clean energy goal for 2025.

Sustainable Transportation Planning List All

Sustainable Transportation Plan

The City has developed and adopted the 2018 “Atlanta’s Transportation Plan”- the update to 2008 Connect Atlanta Plan. This plan lays out an ambitious plan to shift our dominant mode of travel from 54% single-occupancy vehicle (SOV) trips to less than 35% over the next decades, while anticipating a population growth of nearly 200%. This will be accomplished through a massive expansion in transit, and development of a fully connected multimodal street network that will accommodate users of all modes safely and efficiently, implementation of a city-wide Transportation Demand Management policy and program and aligning new development to the expanded transit and multimodal networks. Additionally, Atlanta has a goal in place to reduce emissions from transportation by 20% by 2020 as part of its’ Climate Action Plan. The plan outlines several strategies to achieve this goal including: expanding the Atlanta BeltLine and other TODs, introducing parking pricing, greater transit investment, more pedestrian facilities, expansion of protected bicycle facilities , and expansion of the bicycle share program.
