green today. growth tomorrow.
The Green Today Growth Tomorrow Community Summit of 2011 evolved into the Green2Growth Council and continues to meet bi-monthly at the Worcester Sustainability Hub at 912 Main St. which was one of the original Initiatives identified at the two day Summit at the DCU Center. The impact on the Worcester community can be seen in examples such as the progress of the Smart Energy Solutions Program which is now a reality to roughly 15,000 homes and businesses throughout Worcester and will go fully live in January of 2015 when participants can choose their time-of-use pricing in addition to their preferred technology tools. The Commonwealth of Massachusetts' goal of achieving 15% generation of the state's electricity by 2020 through renewable sources is shared by National Grid and her community partners which include the City of Worcester, Clark University, Worcester Community Action Council, Worcester Polytechnic Institute, Worcester Business Development Corporation, Institute for Energy & Sustainability, Worcester Business Journal, Worcester Housing Energy Community, Stone Soup, Martin Luther King Jr. Business Empowerment Center, The EcoTarium, amongst many other valued community contributors.
