Join MCAN for a clean energy tour of the town of Kingston, MA
Have you ever noticed the wind turbines visible from Route 3? You’ll have a chance to see them up close at our Kingston clean energy tour!
Kingston has a renewable energy grant program, wind turbines on their capped landfill, and has increased its recycling rates after having one of the lowest on the South Shore.
We will meet at the Kingston train station at 10 am
From there we will look at the windmills on the capped landfill and learn about how the town collaborated to get them going
We will then go to an organic farm that serves local restaurants and does much of their own energy generation on site
Next is a tour and talk on the expansion and re-design of the town’s recycling center and Renewable Energy Grant Program
Finally, an optional lunch at the Charlie Horse Restaurant which boasts on-site solar, composting, and locally sourced food.
Ready to be inspired about actions your own town might be able to take to be more green? Learn from your peer’s experience with our Kingston clean energy tour.
We encourage you to take the commuter rail to reduce your carbon footprint. A train arrives at 10 am in Kingston from South Station. We’d like to ask those who will be driving in to volunteer to carpool with anyone who needs a ride when getting around Kingston for the tour.
