Catching the wind in Hudson

Posted by Ralph Ranalli March 28, 2007 06:46 AM


Hudson Light & Power this month joined forces with Mass Energy to give customers the option of giving to the New England Wind Fund, which promotes the development of wind power, manager Yakov Levin said. Customers can make one-time or monthly donations, all of which are tax-deductible.

Levin said the program began after a local environmental group, the Hudson Area Climate Action Network, met with the Hudson Municipal Light Board to discuss global warming. Light & Power currently buys 2 percent of its energy from hydroelectric power plants, and a total of 43 percent of Light & Power’s energy resources have been certified as not contributing to global warming.

Anyone interested in more information is urged to visit the power company online for more information or stop by the Light & Power office at 49 Forest Avenue or mail-in forms.
