Green Communities

On October 25, 2010, Energy and Environmental Affairs Secretary Ian Bowles joined local and state officials to present six communities - Andover, Chelmsford, Hamilton, Lowell, Tyngsboro, and Wenham - with Green Communities grants which fund clean energy projects.

The six communities are among 35 cities and towns across the state selected this summer to share $8.1 million in grants, which are funded through proceeds from carbon allowance auctions under the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI).

The grant awards were presented during an event at Lowell City Hall.
