FRAMINGHAM – Environment Massachusetts, the statewide environmental advocacy organization, will hold an event in Framingham to highlight two local legislators who have filed important pieces of clean energy legislation.
State Representative Jack Lewis, who represents Framingham and Ashland, has proposed a bill that would require rooftop solar panels on new residential and commercial buildings.
State Representative Maria Robinson, who represents Framingham, has filed legislation that would establish minimum energy efficiency standards for existing large buildings.
These bills are included in Environment Massachusetts’ 100% Renewable Energy Agenda, a set of 15 policies that will accelerate our transition to clean, renewable sources of energy for electricity, heating, and transportation.
Environment Massachusetts State Director Ben Hellerstein as well as Framingham Mayor Yvonne Spicer are scheduled to attend and speak.
The event is scheduled at First Parish in Framingham UU Church’s courtyard at 24 Vernon Street at 12:30 p.m.
