Wellesley Becomes First EPA Green Power Community in Massachusetts

September 2012 - The town of Wellesley has become the first U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Green Power Community in Massachusetts. To achieve this designation, a community must acquire at least 3 percent of its electricity from sources of green power and Wellesley's current percentage of renewable use sits at 4.12 percent. The bulk of this renewably generated electricity stems from community members enrolling in the Wellesley's Renewable Energy program. The Renewable Energy program is a local voluntary green power program that purchases its power from the Spruce Mountain wind farm in Maine. Presently, 11.8 percent of Municipal Light Plant accounts participate in the voluntary green power program.
