MA - Work on the ground continues after the vote to switch to 100% renewable for municipal buildings in Amherst.
Andra Rose notes: "This article includes a celebratory photo of us thanking Town Meeting members after our 100% Renewable Energy and Zero Energy articles won. See the super mom cape?"
"…Those in the construction field who signed onto a letter of support for the bylaw argue that zero energy is becoming much easier and doable, and that the worries don’t match reality. Bruce Coldham, a retired Amherst architect, said skeptics have been challenging him since he built his first zero energy project 15 years ago.
'It’s a wonderful opportunity to turn wishful thinking into real achievement,' Coldham said. 'This is a watershed moment.'”
