Amherst's Mothers have two items on the Town Meeting warrant. One calls for all new public buildings to be net Zero Energy. The other calls for support to go 100% renewable and introduces the California model of Community Choice Energy that we're working on with activists from Pelham and Northampton for a multi-community CCE.
We've presented to several town committees and are organizing members to email and call their TM reps. It's a great opportunity to involve members who aren't actively counting already. There has been lots of press, letters to the editor, and positive responses from the community.
