The Agriculture and Conservation measures proposed in the CAP aim to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from agricultural equipment and increase carbon sequestration.
The Agriculture and Conservation category is composed of two strategies and four measures with supporting efforts. The CAP’s Agriculture & Conservation measures will contribute:
- 0.2% of GHG reductions needed to meet the 2020 target;
- 1% of GHG reductions needed to meet the 2030 target;
- 0.4% of GHG reductions needed to meet the 2050 goal.
Strategy A-1 – Support Conversion of Agricultural Equipment to
Measure A-1.1 – Convert Farm Equipment to Electric
Measure A-1.2 – Convert Stationary Irrigation Pumps to Electric
Strategy A-2 – Increase Carbon Sequestration
Measure A-2.1 – Increase Residential Tree Planting
Measure A-2.2 – Increase County Tree Planting
Watch the County implementing our climate action plan which calls
for planting 3,500 trees annually to store carbon, clean the air, and
hold water in the soil for years to come:
