You are invited to join with your friends and neighbors in an evening of discussion that will advance the communities of Buckland, Greenfield, Montague and Shelburne towards a clean, secure and more affordable energy future. Propelled by its citizens, businesses and municipal officials, many communities in Franklin County are already recognized as clean energy leaders. But there is more we can do. Please join us at the Clean Energy 101 Forum to kick-off the Franklin Regional Council of Governments Community Energy Strategies Program for Buckland, Greenfield, Montague, and Shelburne. The Forum will provide an opportunity to share ideas for the development of a community driven Clean Energy Roadmap.
The Forum will be hosted at the Greenfield Community College (GCC) Cafeteria from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm. Doors open at 4:30 pm to the public. Drinks and refreshments will be served.
The Community Energy Strategies Pilot Program (CESP) is an initiative developed by the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center in collaboration with the Department of Energy Resources Green Communities Division. The program, delivered in partnership with local officials and community volunteers, helps communities identify and develop strategies for implementing the mix of clean energy projects and incentives best suited to address local interests, needs, and opportunities for clean energy development across all sectors.
The event is accessible. Please contact Stacy Metzger, FRCOG 413- 774-3167 x128 for any requests for accessibility.
