The Green Community Task Force (GCTF) continues to pursue grants and execute project to reduce our municipal energy use by 20%, and to reduce the Town’s greenhouse-gas emissions. Operating without a budget, GCTF projects continually reduce the Town’s expenses for energy.

In 2020 we received a grant that fully pays for the following projects:

  • Converting to LED lighting in the schools, which we completed in December
  • Updating unit ventilators in the schools, which has been delayed due to availability of materials

We also laid the groundwork to begin the following projects in 2021:

Coming into 2020 with only four members, we added three new members, then very sadly lost one to COVID. Our meetings are open to interaction with the public, and we welcome participation in our activities.
