On October 4, 2017, the Boston City Council unanimously passed an order to authorize the City of Boston to adopt Community Choice Energy.
Now, Mayor Walsh is dragging his feet with a two year implementation timeline, while Boston experiences the brunt of climate change. We can't wait two years to act!
We urge you to join us in asking Mayor Walsh to be a Climate Leader and implement CCE now!

Dozens of towns across Massachusetts and hundreds across America are choosing how they get their energy instead of depending on the utility to choose for them.
Brookline, MA recently initiated a plan to increase their renewable commitment by 25% of their power usage. Greenfield, MA went for a 100% renewables plan in December 2016.
This is a plan that is working for lots of communities - let's make it work for Boston!
With bulk purchasing, we can obtain 5 - 10% more renewable energy without significantly increasing energy costs. This will save tonnes of CO2 each year, protecting the environment and helping us reach our climate targets.
The new Community Choice Energy purchasing plan will add little or no costs to residents or businesses. The new shared plan will also protect us from price spikes caused by the changing cost of fossil fuels.
Have people been calling you or knocking on your door and offering you a new electricity plan? Many of these plans do not deliver on their promises. Our Community Choice Energy plan protects residents against energy scams by implementing a new citywide clean energy electricity plan for all of us.
