For my dissertation, I looked at comprehensive plans for communities. While not central to that research, I had been interested in how communities dealt with or planned for energy use. Over 28 plans in Georgia, I found less than a handful of references to energy in comprehensive plans. That is even in local plans where the same jurisdiction conducted planning and maintained municipal power services. However, there are communities with bold and well-publicized efforts to plan for energy use reductions. A couple that come to mind are Austin, Texas and Boulder, Colorado.
