Fighting for a swift and equitable transition to renewable energy in Concord
The swift and equitable transition to renewable energy
Join the team working to move the town of Concord beyond methane gas - a dirty, dangerous fossil fuel. We are raising awareness about the prevalence and danger of gas leaks, teaching residents about their alternatives to natural gas, and pushing for new local and state legislation which accelerates our transition to renewable energy.
We are introducing home cooks to the joys of gas-free cooking with induction cooking classes, partnering with experts to teach residents about heat pumps, and supporting the efforts of state-level Beyond Gas organizers.

Gas Leaks in Concord
Did you know that Concord has 140+ active gas leaks?
In 2018, Massachusetts utilities reported more than 15,000 un-repaired gas leaks? Methane gas leaks endanger human health and threaten our future, since methane is 80x more potent than carbon dioxide over a 20 year timespan.
That’s why Mothers Out Front is pushing for the swift and equitable transition to renewable energy. We are raising awareness about methane gas leaks and supporting local and state legislation that hastens an equitable transition to renewable energy.
Take a look at the leak map of Concord on the heetma.org website to see if there's a leak near your home or school. Did you know there has been an active gas leak across from the Willard Elementary since 2011?
