City leaders can take major steps to accelerate the transition to 100 percent renewable energy in Boston, according to a report released today by the Environment Massachusetts Research & Policy Center.
Massachusetts ranks sixth in the nation for increased solar energy generation and second for increased electricity efficiency savings since 2007, according to a new report released today by Environment Massachusetts Research & Policy Center.
The amount of solar energy capacity installed in Massachusetts recently surpassed 1,600 megawatts, three years ahead of the goal set out by then-Governor Deval Patrick in 2013. With state officials considering major changes to Massachusetts’ solar policies, the Environment Massachusetts Research & Policy Center submitted testimony today on the proposed Solar Massachusetts Renewable Target (SMART) program.
