About the Company: 

 

The Green Communities Division was established in the Green Communities Act of 2008 as a major focus for the Department of Energy resources in the Executive office of Energy and Environmental Affairs.  The Division’s mission is to make sure that cities and towns maximize their opportunities to save energy in schools, city halls and firehouses; to generate some of their energy needs from wind, local streams, and rivers, forest trimmings; and to make other decisions that reduce their environmental impact and carbon footprint.  The Green Communities Division will collect all the efficiency and renewable energy opportunities available to cities and towns under one organization’ leadership, and streamline the delivery of those programs.

 The Division will act as the focal point and the leverage point for a first-in-the-nation, ground-up sustainability effort led by cities and towns.  The Division will offer a full range of programs and services to municipalities that want to become Green Communities.  The Green Communities programs will complement the rest of the Commonwealth’s energy strategies and combine to cement the Commonwealth’s position as the national leader in tackling our energy and climate challenges.
