The UMass Clean Energy Extension will offer assistance upon request and will proactively outreach to the market sectors that can most likely benefit economically from adoption of clean energy technologies. Depending on circumstances, assistance will be offered at no cost, or for a fee for services.
Key constituents that the UMass Clean Energy Extension will serve include:
- Massachusetts cities and towns – including public school districts, public charter schools, and municipal light plants. This work will be in coordination with the DOER Green Communities Program.
- Commercial and industrial businesses in Massachusetts, particularly those facing energy and greenhouse gas challenges – large fuel oil and propane users, process heat loads, electric demand charges, etc.
- Developers and owners of industrial/commercial business parks.
- Institutions, such as hospitals, private schools, campuses, faith based organizations, etc.
- Housing owners and developers of multi-unit buildings, condominiums, co-housing, or clustered developments. Special efforts will be made to serve the low income housing sector and other special housing for elderly and special needs.
- Existing or new businesses that are entering or expanding into the clean energy sector.
