Small-Scale Solar Still in Question
Thank you to everyone who attended the public hearing Thursday, September 18 at Town Hall and to the Light Board for conducting it.
Among the many items discussed, Selectman Mark Paolillo expressed a clear desire for the Municipal Light Advisory Board to engage with Sustainable Belmont. All the selectmen expressed their appreciation of the work done on the part of the SB-Energy Working Group. We are looking forward to an even more positive working relationship with the town and a brighter future for residents.
This hearing will be available via Belmont Media Center in a few days. Review the Sustainable Belmont Energy Working Group’s presentation slides. Great thanks go to Alix, David and Roger for their preparations. Read the extended commentary submitted by members of Sustainable Belmont’s Energy Working Group, which both opposes the proposed changes and offers viable alternatives (this file includes comments submitted by individuals, as well). As always, voice your concerns to your elected officials. Click here for more updates and information.
By August 15th, the Municipal Light Advisory Board closed its initial period for public comments on proposed changes to net metering. Of the 175 comments submitted, 99% were opposed to MLAB’s proposal and in favor of a more fair and balanced approach. Read a primer and recent updates.
