About the Local Clean Energy Toolkit
This suite of tools was orginally covcieved in 2016 as tool to empower local activists to take action around issues of clean energy and climate change that our federal leaders are ignoring. We hope this library of materials will guide you to take action in your city or town. If you just stumbled across this toolkit, we reccomend starting with the Local Clean Energy Checklist. If you are an experienced activist, go ahead and flip through to find the information you need.

Our dependence on dirty energy like oil and gas pollutes our air and water and harms the health of Massachusetts’ communities. Pipelines threaten our safety and our green spaces. Pollution from fossil fuels are changing our climate and increasing the frequency of droughts, severe storms, and other damaging weather events. You may have seen the videos and images of flooding across the Massachusetts coast. The time for action is now!
We need local action across the globe to advance our clean energy future – and that's why Mass Power Forward has decided to launch local clean energy campaigns across the state. A number of communities have already committed to 100% renewables through a resolution or warrant article.
This toolkit was created by by Mass Power Forward, Mass Climate Action Network (MCAN), Environment Massachusetts, 350MA for a Better Future, and the Massachusetts Sierra Club.
