Tweet to Support Community Choice Energy this Mother's Day!
What is Community Choice Energy?
Community Choice Energy (CCE), also known as municipal aggregation, will increase Boston’s clean energy portfolio by 5% and help Boston reach its goal to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 25% by 2020. It is an easy way to increase renewable energy use in Boston because there is no change to your electricity provider or the billing process. You turn on the lights and you are using 5% more clean energy.
Why act now?
Boston CCE was passed unanimously by our Boston City Council and signed by Mayor Walsh in the fall of 2017. However, it STILL hasn’t been implemented.
We want to thank Mayor Walsh for CCE and let him know how important it is to us to implement it now.
- Plan to share why CCE is important to you by posting on Twitter, Facebook, and/or Instagram on Mother’s Day, not before. Our message will get more visibility if we create a concentrated Tweetstorm!
- Learn more about CCE
- Follow @mothersoutfront on Twitter, @mothersoutfront on Instagram, and Mothers Out Front JP on Facebook
On Mother’s Day - Sunday, May 13, 2018
If possible, please aim to concentrate your tweets between 1-4pm, but anytime during the day is fine.
Tweet Mayor Walsh
- Take picture of yourself telling Mayor Walsh why we need CCE now. You can use a sample sign or any other picture that would get your message across. Get creative!

- #BostonCCE makes #cleanenergy available to everyone regardless of income - all we have to do is turn on our lights. It’s no wonder @Marty_Walsh signed it. But we won't really have CCE until Boston implements it. We are waiting... @MothersOutFront #bospoli
