Palo alto climate team

what we do

Welcome to the 350 SV Palo Alto Climate Team Page! Join us to help Palo Alto fight climate change by reaching our City’s 2030 goal of 80% carbon reduction. 

Our team's mission is to educate and organize the residents of Palo Alto to advocate for robust climate policy at the City and regional levels.  We also provide education on ways to take climate action at the personal level.


'Switch to Electric' campaign in the news 

Why are we phasing out methane gas? What will it cost? Can the grid handle electrification?


These are just a few of the questions answered in a comprehensive FAQ by activist Hilary Glann in the Fall Barron Park Association Newsletter. Check it out here (article begins on page 15) and help spread the word by forwarding to friends and family!

The Palo Alto City Council renewed its commitment to 80% carbon reduction by 2030.  They have stated that a critical step will be fully electrifying nearly all homes in the next 10 years. Now we need to work hard to get the word out and build community support.

Our team is organizing a range of educational projects and activities to speed electrification and the reduction in greenhouse gases. Find out more by visiting the campaign (below).


If you've been looking for a way to get into the climate change fight, join the team! We need help on projects large and small around home electrification in our community. Contact Susan Chamberlain for more information.
