The City of Cambridge was one of 35 cities and towns to be officially designated as a “Green Community” under the first round of a state grant program. To be designated, the City adopted 5 required criteria, including adoption of the Stretch Energy Code, and development of an Energy Reduction Plan for reducing energy consumption by 20% below an FY08 baseline by FY13.
Established under the MA Green Communities Act of 2008, the Green Communities Program is administered by the Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources (DOER) and provides funding to help municipalities pursue energy efficiency measures, large renewable energy projects, and innovative methods that use less fossil fuel.
