Staff Reports

The conversation about the Renewable Denton Plan, a contentious and well-known debate over which energy resources the city should consume, will continue at 6 p.m. Friday in Environmental building 130.

For about six months, residents have mulled the Denton Renewable Denton plan, which calls for 70 percent of the city’s energy to come from renewable resources by 2019. Some residents dispute the plan’s need for two new natural gas plants while others question whether the plan is ambitious enough for a city heralded as a green-friendly bastion against oil and gas companies.

There will be a panel Friday composed of Stanford University professor Mark Jacobson, Cornell University professor Robert Howarth and Dr. Anne Epstein.
