My email this afternoon to members of the Medfield Energy Committee –


The Massachusetts Municipal Association’s magazine, Municipal Advocate,  this month is all devoted to green energy.  I looked for links at the Massachusetts Municipal Association’s website to send to you, but they do not seem to put this material on-line.   I am still reading it, but several things I have already noticed –

  • 340 out of 351 Massachusetts cities and towns already have municipal PV solar arrays – we are in a distinct minority to not yet have one
  • Lancaster opted to own its PV array, to save even more $, and is saving $85,000/year
  • I thought I read that Dartmouth is saving $90,000/year from its three solar arrays
  • some have been built with federal stimulus monies and/or state grants
Enhanced by ZemantaI am now using Zemanta to analyze what I write and to suggest graphics to insert, and I noticed this one.  It is from a meeting at the Hynes Convention Center, probably January 2011, because the Governor was not able to attend this year, and I am probably standing on the right hand side of the room.  It has little to do with green energy, but I liked it.
