Whole communities–like Arlington, Brookline, Dedham, Somerville, Sudbury, and Winchester–are adding more local renewable energy to residents' electricity supply through a process referred to as Green Municipal Aggregation, or GMA (also known as community choice electricity aggregation).
We've produced a comprehensive report on this movement: its benefits, challenges, climate impact and more. Dive in and see the impact, and how you can bring GMA to your community.
The 6 most recent communities to adopt GMA are creating renewable energy demand equivalent to the output of 15-20 large-scale wind turbines
This year, these same GMA communities are saving an average of 17% on electricity compared to customers paying the utility Basic Service rate
GMA is a socially-equitable climate solution that can be implemented in the short-term, but has lasting impacts
