During our May Climate Conversations meeting over Zoom, we will discuss Municipal Aggregation, the bulk
purchase of electricity by municipalities, like Chelmsford. This will include a
history of the two aggregation programs Chelmsford has provided, called
Chelmsford Choice, and the new upcoming program starting in November. Beyond
cost savings aggregation programs can drive demand for more renewable energy.
Hear about how our neighbors, Lowell and Westford have adopted Green Municipal
Aggregation programs. Be prepared to learn about RPS (Renewable Portfolio Standard)
and Class I RECs (Renewable Energy Certificates). Also, you might want to
review your electric bills beforehand.
Please register to receive the Zoom meeting link up to 2PM on May 14, 2020.
