CESP: Northampton

The Northampton Community Energy Strategies Program is an initiative developed by the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center (MassCEC) in collaboration with the Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources (DOER) Green Communities Division.

It provides local residents and businesses an opportunity to work with city leaders to identify, assess and enable new energy efficiency, renewable energy and renewable heating and cooling projects and programs to serve the Northampton community.

As part of the program, community members will define their vision for Northampton’s clean energy future, engaging neighbors, policy-makers, and technical experts in a multi-event stakeholder process.

This process combines a high-level resource assessment with broad stakeholder involvement in order to identify and enable clean energy technologies, projects and incentives best suited to address Northampton’s needs and interests.

Public meetings will also be held for residents and business owners to provide their input throughout the process.
