Acton Climate Action Team

This now-defunct group worked on education and advocacy around climate issues.

The group was formed in 2004 as a local chapter of the Massachusetts Climate Action Network (MCAN). It stopped operating in 2007, and its work and many of its people became part of Green Acton.

Some accomplishments:

  • Organized a well-attended Energy Fair at the Junior High.
  • Helped organize the donations needed to get the first solar panels on an Acton Boxborough school building.
  • Ran an campaign to bring volume trash pricing to the Acton Transfer station. (defeated at a special town meeting)
  • Participated in 2006- 2008 Earth Days, with information on residential solar power and other topics.
  • Letters of endorsement for Cape Wind, the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative, and more.
  • Worked with Town Staff to encourage the hiring of an ESCO (Energy Services Corporation) to enable energy-savings projects paid for by future energy savings.
