Greening Our Municipal Light Plants
14% of our energy in Massachusetts is delivered by Municipal Light Plants (MLPs), which are publicly owned bodies usually governed by an elected Board. To find out if you live in one of the 50 communities served by a Municipal Light Plant, consult this list.
MLP boards are small enough that one strong environmental voice can lead to significant improvements in a community’s clean energy plans and overall emissions. The ELM Action Fund is excited to be supporting candidates for Municipal Light Boards across the Commonwealth, using cutting edge campaign strategies to reach pro-environment voters and fill our MLPs with climate champions.
If you’re a climate champion interested in running for your local Municipal Light Board, we want to help! Please fill out our endorsement interest form here.
