[ARCHIVED] Sept. 24 Public Forum on Greenhouse Gas Reduction Study


The Wellesley Municipal Light Plant Board invites residents to a public forum on Monday, September 24 at 7 PM in the Great Hall at Town Hall to give feedback on a  study exploring options to reduce the town's Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions. 

The Phase 1 study, conducted by the Analysis Group, identified a number of sustainability initiatives available to the Municipal Light Plant from 2018 to 2030. Representatives from the Analysis Group will attend the forum to review their study and answer questions. 

In 2014, the town set a goal to reduce GHG emissions in Wellesley by 25% by the year 2020, relative to 2007, focusing its efforts in the areas of electricity, transportation and building. The MLP also worked to decrease GHG emissions from the purchase and distribution of electricity to its more than 10-thousand customers. This reduction was achieved through both changes in the resources and operation of the regional power system and through MLP investments in energy efficiency, distributed renewable resources, and targeted long-term wholesale contracts for renewable resources.   

The study evaluates the feasibility for additional GHG reductions, provides information and insight on potential strategies that could be used, and examines how those efforts might impact the MLP and its ratepayers.  The findings and feedback from this study will help shape decisions on how the MLP continues to meet the needs of its customers while improving sustainability. 

Review the Analysis Group study.
