Welcome to Worcester Energy!

Worcester Energy is a municipal initiative with the following goals:

  1. To lead by example and improve the energy efficiency and increase renewable energy production of municipal operations;
  2. To communicate the City's efforts related to energy and sustainability; and
  3. To provide local relevant information in order to encourage residents, businesses and institutions throughout the city to save energy and reduce carbon footprint.

Please join us! Together, WE can make a difference.
