Windsor - A Green Community
As an active green community, Windsor is positioned to receive substantial grants towards addressing environmental and energy efficiency issues. Windsor is among 280 Massachusetts communities committed to finding clean energy solutions that reduce long-term energy costs and strenghten our local economies.
Homeowners with grid tied photovoltaic arrays (i.e., "solar") are invited to send their meter readings to the Green Committee to be included in this chart, with data from other residents. This chart [spreadsheet] calculates what portion of electricity used in your home is from your array.
Municipal Aggregation Plan
We are working on developing a Municipal Aggregation Plan, which would authorize Windsor to aggregate the electrical load of consumers located within its borders in order to procure a competitive price for electricity. Please consider sending a letter to the state Department of Public Utilities supporting our request.

4/20/23 Update In the time since we promoted our letter writing campaign to the Department of Public Utilities; Governor Healy has appointed three new commissioners. This is exciting news because all three have strong environmental backgrounds. If you have sent letters previously; we request that you include these new commissioners as soon as an email address is made available. If you have yet to send letters; please do so and include these new commissioners to your recipient list.
Three new commissioners at the Department of Public Utilities:
Jamie VanNostrand starts on 5/1/23. It is thought that his address will be: Jamie.VanNostrand@mass.gov
Staci Rubin started on 4/10 but her email is not yet up, We think it will be: Staci.Rubin@mass.gov
Cecile Fraser has been active and can be reached at: Cecile.Fraser@mass.gov
We will update this information as soon as we know more. Thank you for your involvement in this issue.
