Today, I sat in on a webinar held by Mass Energy. Mass Energy is a non-profit that runs programs around energy affordability and sustainability. Those don’t always go together, for example, one of those programs is a bulk home heating oil purchasing program. But their sustainability programs really do build state-wide purchasing power around efficiency and renewable energy programs.
Their Drive Green program is around acquiring electric vehicles, both battery electrics and hybrids. The webinar gave a great overview of the program, as well as the infrastructure across the state. I’m probably going to run my 15 year old Toyota Corolla into the ground before buying a new car, but when that happens, I hope this program is still around.
