Senate Passes Amendement #3 - Community Empowerment - to bill S.2372

We achieved a great milestone.  The Senate passed the pilot version of Community Empowerment bill for the three south coast counties of Dukes, Barnstable and Nantucket.

Now the bill will go into Conference Committee negotiations to align both the House and the Senate versions of the clean energy bill. If signed into law, this bill will allow the 22 municipalities, located in the three counties, to enter into long term contracts with renewable energy developers on behalf of its residents.
