Who We Are

In 2009, the Green Energy Technology Committee was formed to help the Town qualify for the Commonwealth of Mass. Green Communities designation and thus benefit from state funding to reduce energy consumption in Town buildings.

In 2015, we changed our name to the Green Energy Committee and expanded our purpose to include residential buildings. Today, our goal is to evaluate the feasibility of alternative energy technologies and energy management practices throughout the Town, and to promote residential energy efficiency.
