    ARRA Logo
    The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 created the largest investment in clean energy and energy efficiency in the history of the United States -- more than $80 billion. The Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources (DOER) is directing the use of nearly $70 million of these Recovery dollars. The funds are being put to work to create jobs, spur innovation, and secure the development of clean, sustainable energy sources right here in Massachusetts.

  • Featured ARRA-Funded Clean Energy Projects

    Clean energy projects funded by the Recovery Act are having a positive and lasting impact on communities across the Commonwealth. Learn more about these clean energy projects on the Featured Projects page.
  • Solar Energy

    Roof Solar Panels
    Millions of dollars in federal stimulus funds were invested to in solar projects across Massachusetts. The DOER is directing $18 million of these investments, which will result in an increase of over 10MW in solar capacity in the Commonwealth.
  • High Performance Buildings

    Groundbreaking Ceremony
    The DOER allocated over $15 million in federal stimulus funds through High Performance Building Grants to projects that will deliver innovative ways of achieving dramatic energy savings, create hundreds of jobs, and demonstrate replicable solutions to common energy challenges in both private and non-profit buildings.
  • Investments in State-Owned Buildings

    Electrical Panel
    More than $15 million in federal stimulus funding was allocated to clean energy and renewable energy programs in state facilities, as part of the Massachusetts Leading by Example efforts. Through comprehensive energy projects and an innovative energy monitoring system, state owned buildings and organizations are continuing to lead the way towards a more sustainable Commonwealth.
  • Investments in Cities and Towns

    Nearly $15 million in federal stimulus funding was allocated to municipalities across the Commonwealth with populations of less than 35,000 residents. These funds are directed by the Green Communities Division and are being allocated to dozens of innovative energy efficiency and renewable energy projects.
