The Borough Council accepted Narberth's Climate Action Plan in September 2020! The plan provides a greenhouse gas inventory for Narberth and describes actions aimed at helping helping the Borough reduce its emissions. View the full plan for details.
The Borough of Narberth has joined a growing number of towns in Montgomery County, Southeast Pennsylvania, and across the United States in committing to 100% renewable energy for electricity by 2030 and 100% renewable energy for heating and transportation by 2040. Join the group of dedicated “Narbs” and “Nearbs” who are building partnerships and making personal changes to energy consumption to realize this goal.
Find out how you can make changes right now in the areas of electric choice, heating options, and transportation. Whether you have time once a week, once a month, or once a year, we have impactful ideas for how you can help our community reach the goal of 100% renewable energy.

Options for renewable home heating
If you're planning to upgrade your home's furnace or boiler soon, find out about heating options that do not use heating oil or natural gas. Air source heat pumps are an efficient and economical option whether your home uses hot water radiators/baseboards or forced air.
Trains, bikes, and cars
Narberth is walkable, with excellent access to regional rail, and more residents are taking up bicycling as a fun and active way to get around. New technologies, such as all-electric cars, can also help us meet our goals in this area.
Ways you can reduce consumption and reuse or recycle materials
In addition to making choices to switch to renewable energy sources for electricity, heating, and transportation, recycling, reusing materials, and reducing consumption also helps us build a more sustainable community.
