10/20 Green Muni Summit

Please RSVP and purchase a ticket below. If it would be a financial hardship to attend, you can email orianareilly@massclimateaction.net for a scholarship ticket. 

Customer-advocates from Municipal Light Plant towns across Massachusetts have been meeting over the past year to share solutions, ideas, and skills for making their publicly owned utilities as green as possible. This group has become a solid and inspiring set who are not only pushing their Munis to be better environmentally, but are reinvigorating the public accountability of this form of energy democracy. Public utilities are special because they are owned by their customers through the means of their town government. Democracy is not a spectator sport as they say, so it's up to passionate folks to share what they want to see their utility doing to get to a 100% renewable energy future, whether it's through enhanced energy efficiency programs, solar policies, or where their electricity comes from. We are always looking for new people from Muni towns who have not been involved yet so please join us even if you haven't been to any of our meetings before. 

At the last Muni Summit in June, we heard that this group wanted to meet again before January. This fall is the perfect time as large elections are winding down to refocus your energy on local solutions with your Muni!

At this summit, we will focus on organizing strategy for your groups. This will help you gear up to make critical wins in the spring, whether it's in town meeting or through your governing light board. We have heard from you all that taking a moment to learn about building effective teams and brushing up on the skills to get articles passed would be helpful. 

Agenda sneak peak: Claire, lead organizer from Toxics Action Center will help us with the organizing training!
