About the Committee

The Green Communities Committee assists the Board of Selectmen and Town Administrator in developing programs and projects to foster energy conservation, energy efficiency, renewable energy generation and sustainability planning. The committee gathers, studies and evaluates information that will help determine various approaches for improving the energy efficiency of operating town, school buildings and vehicles. We also investigate alternatives for energy technologies and identify funding opportunities to help the Town achieve its energy and sustainability related goals.

Additionally, the Committee shall develop and recommend approaches for influencing the town residents and businesses to maximize their environmental sustainability through educational outreach, information programs and incentives.
