Massachusetts New Clean Energy Legislation -
WHAT'S NEW AND WHAT DOES IT MEAN FOR BUSINESS?
Massachusetts has been widely recognized as a national leader in driving the use of renewable energy. A big part of that success has been the state’s renewable incentive programs. With coal and nuclear generating plants coming offline over the next few years, the state faces the challenge of meeting its long term renewable goals while replacing significant generating capacity, all without breaking the bank.
The outcome of that process is the state’s new energy bill, passed just as the legislature went into recess in August.
Speakers at this special Forum will break down the new bill, focusing on how the legislation will affect commercial and large scale users. We’ll sort out the winners and losers, and let attendees know how the legislation will affect energy prices as well as future investments in renewables.
Topics of discussion to include:
An update from April’s legislation
Offshore wind and hydro -
Why these options are important and what it means for the state?
Energy Storage -
C-PACE (Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy)
- The benefits and details in this new program that allows companies to finance the cost of energy efficiency improvements through their property tax bill.
