The Sustainable Fairfield Task Force (SFTF) encourages community action supporting the broader use of clean, renewable energy sources Town-wide, creating opportunities for Town residents to take control of their energy costs and also help safeguard the environment.   The SFTF works to encourage and support participation by Fairfield's residents and businesses in energy savings programs.    For a “bird’s-eye” look at the Town’s commitment in action, you can visit the SFTF’s YouTube Channel.

The SFTF is supporting the Town's efforts to become a Clean Energy Community and to use 20% clean, renewable energy by 2018 among other energy-saving goals under the "Fairfield Commits to Clean Energy" Campaign".
