Tell Governor Charlie Baker, Lt Governor Polito, and Environmental Secretary Katie Theohorides to act on energy justice today!
Massachusetts is facing an environmental justice crisis! State programs, like Mass Save, are designed to work with residents and businesses to improve their energy efficiency, ultimately cutting energy expenses and limiting carbon emissions that contribute to climate change. These programs however have failed to service many of the people most in need.
Underserved and language-isolated communities across Massachusetts struggle with high electricity bills while wealthier suburbs access the state’s energy efficiency services at 6-7 times the rate of low- and moderate-income communities and communities of color. Policy makers are currently developing an energy efficiency plan for the next three years (2022-2024).
