Policy: DOER - Green Communities Grant Program
Description: In 2008, Massachusetts enacted the Green Communities Act and created the Green Communities Division within the Department of Energy Resources (DOER) to support Massachusetts communities towards a sustainable future, specifically in terms of energy use. The Green Communities Division offers financial incentives for communities investing in energy efficiency upgrades and policies, renewable energy technologies, energy management systems and services, and demand side reduction programs.
The Green Communities Division provides several model ordinances and guides and is staffed with energy experts to help communities take these steps to earn “Green Community” designation.
