Clean Energy Policy is Local

Municipal innovative energy policies are more important than ever. In this Letter to the Editor in the August 10th Daily Hampshire Gazette, I describe the disappointing statewide energy bill and why local is where the successes will be for the next few years. “The failure of our state legislators (not including our stellar local representatives) to recognize the urgency of climate change is all the more reason for Amherst and other cities and towns to fast track local renewable energy development, energy efficiency and conservation measures that will reduce greenhouse gases and contribute to local resiliency.”
