Hearing on Renewable Portfolio Standard Bill

The Joint Committee on Telecommunications, Utilities and Energy (TUE) will hold a hearing on bills related to the Renewable Portfolio Standard. The RPS is a critical tool for advancing clean energy. Come show your support!

Mass Power Forward supports increasing the Renewable Portfolio Standard by 3% each year, driving demand for renewable power and growing our local clean energy industries. We also support a statewide solar target of 25% solar by 2030. Additionally, we support a proposal by Rep. Khan to accelerate the RPS by 2% per year while incorporating municipal light plants into the state’s clean energy goals.
