Mayor Gutierrez Attends National Energy Policy Institute
Mayor Yxstian Gutierrez recently attended the National Policy Institute on Energy, Natural Resources and Climate Change along with dozens of other Latino elected officials as part of the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials (NALEO) Educational Fund.
Mayor Gutierrez and other Latino policymakers discussed various policy approaches for the reliable and affordable development and use of energy while addressing the responsible stewardship of natural resources and the future vitality of our communities.
"Ensuring an understanding of energy, natural resources, and climate change is crucial to the future sustainability of our City,” said Mayor Gutierrez.
The Policy Institute brought state legislators and local policymakers together with leading national and state experts, private sector representatives and other key stakeholders for two days of professional development in Houston, Texas. During the training, Mayor Gutierrez and other Latino officials expanded their understanding of our country’s most pressing energy, natural resource and climate change issues and exchanged legislative ideas and best practices with colleagues from across the country.
The City of Moreno Valley adopted its Energy Efficiency and Climate Action Strategy in 2012 to reduce the environmental and fiscal impact of energy usage and greenhouse gas emissions in City facilities and within the community.
The City’s plan includes strategies to reduce the City’s electricity and water consumption while increasing recycling and diversion efforts, many of which have already been implemented.
