Massachusetts green group pushes for 100% statewide renewables by 2050


A Massachusetts environmental group – Environment Massachusetts – is pushing state legislation to mandate the Bay State get all of its electricity from renewables by 2035 and all of the state’s energy – including heating and transportation – from green energy by 2050. The group is backing two bills, introduced by three Democratic legislators in the state House and Senate, which would vault the state ahead of all others in the quest for total elimination of fossil fuels. Massachusetts already has ambitious renewable energy goals, mandating greenhouse gas reductions of 25% by 2020 compared to 1990 levels. The legislation is not likely to pass, but keeps the issue before the legislators.  February 16, 2017
