Should burning trees & garbage count as clean energy? Should our state clean energy $$ go to burning trees?

Massachusetts' Renewable Energy Portfolio Standard (RPS) was one of the first programs in the nation that required a certain percentage of the state's electricity to come from renewable energy.

The proposed rules change will allow Biomass to take clean energy subsidies that currently go to solar and wind, and allow electric companies to count biomass as a clean energy source.

May 17 Gardner
1 to 3 p.m. at Mount Wachusett Community College,
444 Green St. in Gardner.
