Event Description

Join MCAN for a clean energy tour of the town of Kingston, MA

Kingston has a renewable energy grant program that is really innovative and might work in your town. Who doesn't like to give away money? The town sells a portion of the electricity from the solar and wind on the landfill, and use the money to fund local projects. Kingston also has increased its recycling rates after having one of the lowest on the South Shore. They coordinated the improvements to their recycling system to make a capped landfill wind project possible.

Ready to be inspired about actions your own town might be able to take to be more green? Learn from your peer’s experience with our Kingston clean energy tour.

When: 10 am - 1 pm with an optional lunch 1-2pm
