Melrose Clean Energy Forum on May 14

Are you concerned about where our energy comes from? Are we too reliant on fossil fuels? Do we really need more fracked gas pipelines? What about energy efficiency? Are we on course to meet our climate goals?

As Massachusetts prepares to retire its remaining coal and nuclear plants, we face an unprecedented opportunity to power our state with clean, renewable, locally-produced electricity. Costs of offshore wind and solar continue to drop, while costs of fossil fuels like natural gas remain volatile and subject to global market fluctuations. Innovations in energy efficiency and conservation are attractive solutions.

Join Sustainable Melrose, Clean Water Action, Mass Energy, and the Massachusetts Sierra Club at Melrose City Hall on Saturday, May 14th, 2:00-4:00PM to discuss the important decisions facing the Commonwealth in the coming months that will affect us for decades–and learn what you can do about it.

WHERE: Melrose City Hall Aldermanic Chamber
WHEN: Saturday, May 14, 2-4PM

Speakers:

  • Cathy Buckley, Chair, Massachusetts Sierra Club
  • Eugenia Gibbons, Clean Energy Program Director, Mass Energy
  • Christophe Courchesne, Chief, Environmental Protection Division, Office of the Attorney General (invited)
