MassDOT's GreenDOT environmental responsibility and sustainability initiative is a priority focus in all MassDOT divisions.  GreenDOT's three primary goals are to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, promote healthy transportation options including walking, bicycling, and public transit, and support smart growth development.

Katie Servis of the MassDOT Aeronautics Division is a member of MassDOT's Sustainability Committee who along with other committee members is featuring the "green" initiatives of MassDOT.  In the Aeronautics Division, Servis is assembling "green" fact sheets on the Commonwealth's general aviation airports.

In the latest edition of the Aeronautics newsletter, the fact sheet highlights the installation of a solar panel system on the roof of the community hangar at the Northampton Airport.  The solar panels are connected to the local utility power grid and are projected to provide up to $1,800 worth of electricity annually.
