Hear What the Community Is Saying....
“We are constantly bombarded by solicitations from third party suppliers. It is hard to know what service offers legitimate value. The Brookline Green Electricity program eliminates the research and guesswork that goes into choosing a new supplier." - Frank Caro, Director, Brookline Community Aging Network
“Brookline has developed a program that is good for consumers and the environment, and it’s received the stamp of approval from the state Department of Public Utilities.” - Werner Lohe Co-Chair, Select Board's Climate Action Committee
"Brookline Green Electricity was designed to be inclusive and ensure that all residents, including low-income households, and businesses would have the opportunity for monthly savings and protection from market volatility while reducing our carbon emissions by using renewable energy. The program offers four products to provide maximum flexibility. And, participants may opt-out at any time without paying a fee.” - Selectwoman Nancy Heller, Co-Chair, Select Board’s Climate Action Committee
"Participating in Brookline Green is the easiest, most effective thing we can do to keep fossil fuels in the ground. No other action we can take will result in carbon emission reductions of this magnitude. This is an essential step for our community to become part of a growing movement to a clean energy future." - Kathleen Scanlon, architect; Coordinator, Mothers Out Front
“The Commonwealth requires that 16% of all electricity purchased in 2020 come from renewable sources, increasing every year to 55% by 2050. But the state goal is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions 80% by the year 2050. Individual consumers supporting renewable energy through programs like Brookline Green Electricity are essential if we are to reach our climate goal.” - Tommy Vitolo, State Representative & Brookline resident
