Increases in Carbon-Free Electricity

Currently, 47% of Wakefield’s electricity supply is considered carbon-free. In anticipation of legislation requiring increases in our carbon-free electricity supply to 50% by 2030, 75% by 2040, and 100% by 2050, WMGLD is:

(1) expanding wind, at its existing wind farm in the Berkshires

(2) increasing rooftop solar, on homes, businesses, and municipal buildings in town

(3) adding ground-mounted solar, installed in communities with lower cost land and more available space

(4) expanding hydro, by purchasing more supply from Canada
