Needham officials looking to renewable energy funding

Posted by Ralph Ranalli October 3, 2007 07:46 AM


Town officials are looking to qualify for funding from the Massachusetts Technology Collaborative, the state’s development agency for renewable energy, through the Clean Energy Choice program.

Needham Town Manager Kate Fitzpatrick said the town would earn matching grants from the MTC for each resident that opts to pay a premium on their energy bills to support renewable energy. The cost of the premium depends on the supplier.

If 150 Needhamites enroll in the program by April 30, 2008, the town will qualify for a 2-kilowatt photovoltaic solar system.
