What is a “Green Community”?

A Green Community is a town in Massachusetts that has met the criteria of the “Green Communities Division” of the Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources (DOER).  Becoming a Green Community makes a town eligible to receive funding for energy efficiency initiatives, renewable energy, and innovative projects for municipal facilities. Over 240 towns in Massachusetts are Green Communities.  Our neighbor towns of Dighton and Seekonk have already completed the application process and have been added to the list.  Rehoboth is working on this process as well.
