  8. A Conversation about the Role of Community Electricity in Reaching 100% Renewable Energy Statewide

    March 29, 2017, 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM @ Jewish Community Center

    To get to 100% renewable energy we have to change how we use and source energy. Two innovative renewable energy program directors will compare and contrast their models for Green Community Choice Aggregation (CCA). CCAs are a way of pooling the purchasing power of a community's government, residents, and businesses to buy electricity that greens the grid. The goal of both Local Power and MassEnergy is to increase communities' access to renewable resources and add to the amount of renewables in Massachusetts. They use different ways of purchasing, funding, and selecting energy resources. Fenn and Chretien will present their models briefly and ask each other questions, probing the technical and philosophical choices integral to their approaches. The audience will have opportunities to join the conversation through written questions and by taking turns sitting with the guests. Residents, business community and town energy committee members, and town officials are invited.
