Climate Change

Knightdale is taking steps to protect the environment and lessen our contribution to climate change. The Town of Knightdale has endorsed a transition from fossil fuels to clean energy by 2050 or sooner, as well as legislation that can help Knightdale achieve clean energy. The Town of Knightdale signed a climate resolution brought by the Citizens’ Climate Lobby on March 17th, 2021. North Carolina is already experiencing the impact, through warmer temperatures, higher sea levels, and more dangerous weather. These conditions can negatively impact our wildlife and agriculture, and by extension, our economy, food, and daily lives. Climate change is both a local and global issue, and everyone has a role in its mitigation. As the Town of Knightdale works to become greener, so can individuals in the community.
