Municipal Light Plants (or MLPs) are local utilities in individual towns in Massachusetts. These utilities are responsive to the democratic process- the ‘light board’ is often an elected position. The MLPs are also on a journey to decarbonization. MCAN has published a report assessing the efforts, successes and opportunities for these MLPs. We discuss the report with the authors.
The reading list:
Because we recognize the necessity of personal accountability for our actions, because we accept responsibility for a building a durable future and because we believe it is our patriotic duty as citizens to speak out, we must insist the United States transform it’s energy sector, over the next decade, under a just and equitable plan, that uses regulations, investments and a price on carbon to safeguard our collective future.
Thanks for listening.
