    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 is not only pushing their Munis to be better environmentally, but is also reinvigorating the public accountability of these departments.

    Public utilities are unique because they are owned by their customers through the means of their town government. However, it’s up to passionate folks to push for what they want. For many, it's a 100% renewable energy future through enhanced energy efficiency programs, solar policies, and more clean energy on the grid. At this summit, we will focus on organizing strategy for these solutions. 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 many of you that the opportunity to learn about building effective teams and brushing up on the skills to get articles passed would be helpful.
