Projects
10 Percent Challenge This Green Needham flagship project supports Needham residents in reducing their energy use and carbon footprint by 10%.
Wind Feasibility Study This project will install a tower with instruments at a location near the Needham RTS to measure the wind over a one-year period. The resulting information will be analyzed to determine the business case for installation of a wind turbine that would generate lower-cost clean electricity for the Town.
RTS Solar A complementary project to install Solar Photovoltaic arrays at the RTS to generate electricity. A preliminary site survey has identified the possibility of 1 MW of solar electric generating capacity.
Home Energy Efficiency Improvement An initiative to engage local businesses (HVAC and related) and financial institutions to create a program that makes it easier for Needham residents to identify and implement high-value home energy efficiency improvements.
Green Community Becoming a Massachusetts Green Community
