A MASS. ACT TO PROMOTE A CLEAN ENERGY FUTURE

According to the Environmental League of Massachusetts:

Last week the Senate Committee on Global Warming and Climate Change released a comprehensive bill that will result in a cleaner environment and robust economic growth for Massachusetts. Although we made great strides forward with the energy bill the legislature passed in 2016, we still have a long way to go. This bill will make sure that we continue to move in the right direction. 

Among other things, this bill...  

1.  Calls for an increase in development of offshore wind resources;

2.  Increases the renewable portfolio standard, requiring energy utilities to purchase a higher percentage of their energy from renewable sources;

3.  Removes the artificial "net metering" caps on solar installations, allowing the deployment of more solar panels across the state;

4.  Establishes the nation's first energy efficiency score for homes that will provide home buyers with vital information about the energy use of homes on the market.
