|By 2025, America's farms, forests and ranches will provide 25 percent of the total energy consumed in the United States, while continuing to produce safe, abundant, and affordable food, feed and fiber.|
"25x'25" is a rallying cry for renewable energy and a goal for America – to get 25 percent of our energy from renewable resources like wind, solar, and biofuels by the year 2025.
Increasing America's renewable energy use will:
- Bring new technologies to market and save consumers money.
- Reduce our dependence on oil from the Middle East.
- Create good new jobs in rural America.
- Clean up the air and help reduce urban smog and greenhouse gas emissions.
A group of volunteer farm leaders first envisioned the goal of 25x'25, and it quickly gained the support of a broad cross-section of the agriculture and forestry communities. Now leaders from business, labor, conservation and religious groups are joining this alliance as well. 25x'25 is supported financially by the Energy Future Coalition, a non-partisan public policy initiative funded by foundations.
