Green Energy Consumers Alliance and our allied organizations are certain that more legislation is needed if Massachusetts is to meet its greenhouse gas emission reduction mandates. This is especially true when it comes to the state's second-largest source of emissions, the residential and commercial building sector. No one bill or policy proposed in this session is sufficient by itself to meet these objectives. However, several complementary policies have been proposed together that would move us away from fossil fuels and towards electrification.
Over 70 climate organizations have come together so far to put forward the Clean Heat Platform—specific strategies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the building sector in a cost-effective, equitable, and timely manner. We have presented the Clean Heat Platform to legislators and to the Healey administration. It is our expectation that the legislature will pass another climate bill by June or July of 2024. Please read our letter and find out how you can become involved.
