    The environment and energy commission shall have the responsibility for and be required to:

(1)    Prepare a commission report to the city council on how a plan for energy conservation might be developed. In order to prepare this report, the commission should gather information from other parts of the country, particularly those cities who have such a plan in place; the commission, or representatives of the commission, should visit certain model cities who have ongoing plans in place, to see how that particular model has worked; and, in limited situations, may require the services of a consultant. The final report should be a blueprint for the city to proceed in the development of a comprehensive energy conservation plan.

(2)    Act in an advisory capacity to the council in all matters pertaining to environmental protection, which could include questions of energy efficiency and conservation, and of changing technology.

(3)    Assist in the planning of environmental improvements, promote and stimulate public interest thereon; and to that end, solicit to the fullest possible extent the cooperation of other public and private agencies.
