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.
