Other environmental efforts
Fargo was the only city in North Dakota to be awarded the Clean Renewable Energy Bonds that North Dakota's Congressional Delegation helped establish. They allow cities to market energy bonds to businesses that can use the federal income tax credit to encourage more community-owned electricity development projects. Fargo used the bonds for its methane capture project at the landfill.
The city also has a Renewable Energy and Conservation Committee, whose mission is "to pursue, plan and implement policies and/or programs that will foster conservation, utilize and develop renewable resources, and protect the environment."
