Developing a Clean Energy Roadmap
On August 21, 2013, over 90 people attended the Northampton Community Energy 101 Forum to kick-off the Northampton Community Energy Strategies Program. The conversation was lively as attendees shared their ideas for the development of a comprehensive, communitywide Clean Energy Roadmap, which will help guide the community on our journey to a clean, secure and affordable energy future.
View a list of the shared visions, strategies, and potential actions that came out of this event.
Thanks to Northampton resident Ruth McGrath, portions of the event may be viewed on the Northampton Youtube site.
City staff, our state partners, and a local 16-member Clean Energy Working Group are taking the ideas generated by the 101 forum along with a clean energy resource analysis of Northampton being developed by the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center and developing proposed concrete actions which we will bring back to the community in the Community Energy 201 Forum.
In the mean time, please check out what the city has already done toward clean energy and review the resources the city has compiled to help community individuals and businesses move toward cleaner energy.
