Clean Energy

A Norwood administration will…

  • Work to reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions (GHG) by generating a substantial portion of electricity from renewable energy such as solar and wind, and increasing the energy efficiency of our homes and workplaces.

  • Develop a renewable energy resources distribution plan including rooftop solar, community solar and cooperative solar to save money on utility costs.

  • Significantly increase clean and renewable energy sources by implementing Climate Action Plan strategies, energy efficiency improvements and renewable energy systems for city buildings, expanding the residential and commercial rooftop solar markets, providing Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) financing for residential and commercial properties, and weatherization and energy efficiency resources for low-income household and seniors.
