This year Atlanta became the 27th U.S. city committed to 100% clean energy. This feat would not have been possible without the city’s real-life superheroes – local Atlantans who team up and give their 100% to create a community powered by clean, renewable energy for all.
These everyday heroes often don’t get the recognition they deserve, so we teamed up with our friends Mark Ruffalo and Chris Evans of Marvel’s The Avengers: Infinity War to change that.

Seeing the reactions of these five local clean energy avengers when we surprised them was priceless. With heartfelt recognition from their friends and family in the audience and a surprise appearance by Mark Ruffalo, Atlanta showed up and showed out for their community. That’s what 100% looks like.
Keep powering on!
