Some of CT’s most experienced clean energy advocates hail from Enfield, Milford, Weston, Wilton, Portland, Fairfield, Westport, Brookfield, Newtown and Branford. They have worked hard over the years to educate their hometowns — especially their elected officials and Boards of Ed — to adopt 21st century best practices around energy efficiency and local clean energy generation. The individuals in the photo came together to salute the accomplishments of Fairfield’s Bob Wall (third from left in the back row), and to plan further actions that will help mitigate climate change, town by town.

Thoughts to ponder: What total capacity of clean energy generation has been deployed as a result of the local actions and subsequent installations that our Network’s members across the state have spearheaded? How many “negawatts” of power (electricity not needed) have been created, due to the implementation of energy conservation and efficiency measures in schools and municipal buildings? How many millions of dollars in avoided energy costs can CT taxpayers thank our Network for?!

YEAR OF LOCAL ACTION

… 2018 has been named the Year of Local Action. And the Eastern CT Green Action group is leading the way. ECGA was formed by several people from towns in eastern Connecticut. Initially most people were from Mansfield; as of now, people from Andover, Ashford, Chaplin, Coventry, Eastford, Hampton, Lebanon, Pomfret, Scotland, Tolland, Willington and Windham are members.

With the publication of his excellent weekly newsletter CT Green News, ECGA co-founder Peter Millman is helping us Nutmeggers stay up to date on issues, events and opportunities for concerned citizens to connect with their elected officials. He has published over 50 editions of his newsletter, and would love to broaden his every Friday distribution. Just contact Peter via info@easternctgreenaction.com and benefit from his convenient digest of important news and environmentally-focused online postings.
