Green Communities

The Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources (DOER) designated Burlington a Green Community in February of 2020. To qualify as a Green Community, the Town of Burlington adopted five required criteria, including the Stretch Energy Code and the development of a five-year Energy Reduction Plan (ERP).

The Green Communities Division strives to help 351 Massachusetts cities and towns find clean energy solutions that reduce long-term energy costs and strengthen local economies. The division provides technical assistance and financial support for municipal initiatives to improve energy efficient and increase the use of renewable energy in public buildings, facilities, and schools.
