About the Colrain Energy Committee

The town warrant of May 2017 (FY2018) unanimously approved appointment of the Colrain Energy Committee. Our mission is to develop an energy plan that will prepare the town of Colrain for a future that will require a significant decrease in the use of fossil fuel as a source of energy in town buildings, businesses, residences, and vehicles. We will develop a plan that moves Colrain toward the increased use of local clean energy sources to stabilize long-term energy costs while strengthening our local economy to benefit us all.
