The only Fund that gives you the power to choose how & where renewable energy is developed
The Ultimate in Locally Driven Additionality
Choose to invest in new local renewable energy
Work with other renewable leaders to decide how and where to support new renewable generation
Community Choice Aggregations (CCAs) can now support the cultivation of new, sustainable energy generation right here in Massachusetts
The Massachusetts Renewable Energy Fund is the only way a CCA can be assured that their environmental stewardship results in Massachusetts-based ‘additionality’
How it works:
CCAs can choose any amount to add to their baseline electricity supply cost
That amount goes directly into the Fund every month
The CCA, acting through the Select Board or City Council/Mayor may select one representative from the CCA to participate in the Fund Oversight Board
The Fund Oversight Board, as assisted by an independent trustee, offers grants on a competitive basis to Massachusetts-based renewable energy developers to facilitate the development of NEW renewable energy generation
As a result, CCAs in Massachusetts will have a direct impact on the development new renewable energy generation in the Commonwealth
