The Southampton Energy Committee was formed in February 2009 as per the Memorandum of Agreement between Southampton and the Pioneer Valley Planning Commission (PVPC).
Four goals identified for Western Massachusetts in the PVPC Clean Energy Plan are:
1. Reduce Energy Consumption by 15% by 2020
(energy conservation and efficiency),
2. Replace the energy used from non-renewable fossil fuels with “clean” renewable energy sources (such as solar, wind, geothermal) generated in the region.
3. Reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
4. Create local jobs in the clean energy sector.
The Committee is busy identifying initiatives that will help the Town and its residents move toward an awareness and implementation of the Clean Energy goals.
Please join our email list by sending a note to our email address listed below. We’ll keep you informed of seminars, homeowner grants/tax credits and other local energy news.
