GreenCommunities_2.7Million
Since the Green Communities Act was passed in 2008, 86 cities and towns in the Commonwealth have been officially designated as a Green Community – that means more than 2.7 million Massachusetts residents are living in a municipality that has met five clean energy criteria.

Visit the Green Communities web page to see a map of the 86 municipalities and to learn more about the program.
