  • Cambridge Community Electricity Program

    Starting June 18, 2017, the City of Cambridge will bring the benefits of renewable energy and electricity choice to its residents and businesses through the Cambridge Community Electricity program. The program offers residents and small businesses on Eversource's Basic Service rate 25% more solar electricity while supporting local renewable energy projects and maximizing consumer protections - all for a price at or below the average price of Basic Service power from the utility.

What We Do

The Environmental and Transportation Planning Division is responsible for addressing climate change by developing policies and programs to reduce energy use, protect natural resources, and reduce pollution. We partner with other departments around municipal initiatives and work with the city’s businesses, institutions, and residents to further their efforts to reduce their climate impacts.

Cambridge is a member of ICLEI - Local Governments for Sustainability, which includes over 1,200 communities around the world that are tackling climate change.
