Officials

Michelle Wu

Boston City Councilor-at-Large

"The law lays out a process for the City of Boston to choose to power our city as a whole with renewable energy resources such as solar and wind. Community choice energy is the fastest way that Boston can get on the path to being a 100% renewable energy city."

Matt O'Malley

Boston City Councilor

"Fighting climate change and protecting our environment is about equity and social justice, standing together to prevent disastrous impacts that will fall disproportionately on vulnerable communities."

Tito Jackson

Boston City Councilor

"Community Choice Energy is simply the right thing to do. It is critical for the City of Boston to use its resources to significantly fight climate change, and become a leader in standing for a better environment. We are a coastal city that already sees first hand the impact of the climate literally on our doorstep, and Boston’s residents all deserve to breathe clean air and have access to clean water. Community Choice Energy has proven to be a successful strategy for reducing fossil fuel consumption, and by focusing on local renewable energy sources, it can also stimulate a second-fold bottom line of job growth in the green economy as well. I applaud all those who unswervingly do this important work. We must all join that effort."

Josh Zakim

Boston City Councilor

"We must all work together to protect our city from climate change. Adopting CCE is a small, simple step that we can take that will make a large impact on our environment."

Annissa Essaibi-George

Boston City Councilor

"Climate Change is a clear threat to future generations. I am committed to supporting work and policy that advances our transition to clean, renewable sources of energy. We have an obligation to do all we can to preserve a habitable environment for our children and their children."
