February 2002 - The Massachusetts Energy Consumers Alliance (Mass Energy), a heating oil cooperative serving Eastern and Central Massachusetts, is exploring opportunities for pooling consumer demand for green power. Partners in the effort include more than a dozen local cities and community organizations, such as the Boston Public Health Commission, Town of Brookline, City of Cambridge, City of Newton, Clean Water Action, Environmental League of Massachusetts (ELM), Massachusetts Climate Action Network, Massachusetts Audubon Society, Massachusetts Public Interest Research Group, Sierra Club of Massachusetts, and Tufts Climate Initiative.
Mass Energy (formerly the Boston Oil Consumer's Alliance) has offered a green energy option to its members since December 1998. Co-op members can purchase 2,000-kWh annual blocks of Sun Power Electric's ReGen product at a cost of $6 per month. The green power is supplied from solar and landfill gas facilities in New England.
