According to the most recent report of the Sustainable Energy Committee, 53% of Wellesley’s carbon emissions come from buildings, through inefficient design and construction.  But our town’s green building requirements can’t exceed those of the state’s  “stretch code” and, right now, that “stretch code” is in bad need of updating.

Advocates of a Net Zero Stretch Code are urged to either write or attend the next meeting of the BBRS on this issue.

From Mass Power Forward:

Last Thursday, the Massachusetts Senate unanimously passed the most ambitious and far-reaching piece of clean energy legislation (S2545) in the country. It includes key Mass Power Forward priorities: solar equity, the Renewable Portfolio Standard, a dedicated plan to act on climate change and reforms to push back on pipeline expansion.

Click here to easily thank your Senator for supporting this historic bill, and urge your State Representative to take action.

This victory shows the enormous public pressure to combat climate change––pressure YOU helped generate. But now we need the House to act.

Please tell Your State Representative: Pass A Bold Clean Energy Bill Before July 31!
