Massachusetts is one of the lead states participating in the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI), the nation's first market-based, regulatory program to cap and reduce greenhouse gas emissions from large fossil-fueled power plants.
Based on the Green Communities Act of 2008, the Department of Energy Resources (DOER) has directed the vast majority of the Commonwealth’s RGGI proceeds into the state’s nation-leading energy efficiency programs delivered statewide by the state’s utilities and energy efficiency service providers through Mass Save®, and the Green Communities Designation and Grant Program for cities and towns. These programs and initiatives are fueling a cleaner energy future for the Commonwealth.
Massachusetts has received $252,877,181 since 2008.
