The Massachusetts Clean Energy Center (MassCEC) is dedicated to accelerating the success of clean energy technologies, companies and projects in Massachusetts—while creating high-quality jobs and long-term economic growth for the people of Massachusetts.
MassCEC provides seed investments to startup companies, funds renewable energy rebates for residents and businesses and supports the development of a local clean energy workforce. Since its inception in 2009, MassCEC has helped clean energy companies grow, supported municipal clean energy projects and invested in residential and commercial renewable energy installations creating a robust marketplace for innovative clean technology companies and service providers.
On Monday, Energy and Environmental Affairs Sec. Rick Sullivan joined MassCEC CEO Alicia Barton and Department of Energy Resources Commissioner Mark Sylvia to announce the 15 participating communities in the new round of Solarize Mass. The announcement was made in front of a large crowd of past and present Solarize volunteers at Atkins Farm in Amherst.
In honor of celebrating Veteran’s Day earlier this month, we at MassCEC would like to thank all our veterans for their service to our country and highlight some connections between veterans and our growing clean energy sector.
As a booming sector of the Massachusetts economy, the clean energy ecosystem places great value on the skills that veterans bring to the table. (The clean energy sector in Massachusetts grew by 11.8 percent last year.) A recent Greentech Media article by Michael Baskin highlights a unique pipeline between returning veterans and the clean energy industry – quite possibly “the opportunity of a century.”
Massachusetts clean energy companies like Digital Lumens in Boston have committed to employing veterans – in fact, as of this month 10 percent of their workforce are veterans. We hope other Massachusetts clean energy companies will follow their lead and look out for this opportunity – from this skilled and dedicated workforce.
Every weekday, MassCEC sends out a daily digest with a roundup of local, state, national and international clean energy news.
This weekly roundup is designed to give you the highlights from the week in clean energy news.
