The Clayton County Energy District

The Clayton County Energy District (CCED) is a non-profit organization committed to strengthening our community through inclusively leading, implementing and accelerating the LOCAL clean energy transition.

By putting boots on the ground in Clayton County:

We positively affect the local economy by reducing energy cost.

We slow climate change by promoting wise energy use.

We include everyone.

LED Light Bulb Initiative

We are putting 5000 LED light bulbs into Clayton County’s light sockets because over the LED’s thirteen year lifetime, it will save us $417,500 in energy cost and reduce our carbon footprint by 4200 metric tons! 

The thermometer shows our progress so far.
