Greening Greenfield is a group of concerned citizens working with residents, businesses and government to make Greenfield more sustainable.

Real awareness on climate change and energy conservation are taking place in Greenfield. Greening Greenfield is happy to report to you that:

  • more than 1600 people have taken part in Greening Greenfield events ranging from energy conservation workshops to films, to forums about Creating Greenfield’s Future .
  • More than 250 homes have received energy upgrades in the past 2 years.
  • Greenfield’s Sustainable Master Plan is almost completed with Greening Greenfield members playing a major role in moving it forward.
  • Sustainability is now a part of Greenfield’s lexicon: the new high school will have solar panels; the Town’s electric group-buying plan will offer 100% green electricity; the Bendix property offers solar redevelopment; and an additional solar farm for the Town is in the works

But we are a long way from being done. We have some big projects planned for 2014. We are

  • partnering with the Town on a project which will offer homeowners lower priced solar panels for their homes.
  • planning a Community-Shared Solar project which will offer renters and others the opportunity to benefit from solar power through a cooperatively-owned solar farm.
  • offering a film series that includes a “Water Weekend” which will explore water conservation and improvement here in the Valley and throughout the world.
  • We will hold our third “Creating Greenfield’s Future” forum, and our third Science and Sustainability Expo for middle and high school students.

And this is only part of our work. You can see that we are busy!
