Everyone is welcome.

Our group needs new Energy! Join us and help shape our policies and actions toward cutting energy use and hence greenhouse gas emissions in New England.

In September 2022, we formed an action group called Renewable Energy, Education, Action and Community Health (REEACH).  This grew out of the Climate Action group and with a specific focus on engaging with Renewable Energy development on the ground living in the activated New England Renewable Energy Zone (NE REZ)

The objectives of REEACH include renewable energy education, advocacy, community benefit,
community ownership, and community resilience. We are about enabling/promoting good action locally,
facilitating community engagement from ordinary citizens in public policy and with a view that attention to
environmental health in all decision making is the bedrock for achieving community health.
