In December 2008, the Town Council requested the West Hartford Clean Energy Task Force to "develop a comprehensive energy plan by March 1, 2009 for the Town's buildings, lighting, and vehicle fleet" and to "identify opportunities for (i) energy mitigation through improved efficiencies and a culture of conservation and (ii) the increased use of clean and renewable energy sources." In 2009, the Town Council adopted this plan, which only targeted town operations and infrastructure. The plan did not address clean energy and energy efficiency opportunities for residents and businesses, but recommended that future versions broaden the scope of the plan to include all of West Hartford.
The 2017 plan includes residential, commercial (including industrial), and town operations. In writing this update, the Clean Energy Commission strove to adopt quantitative measures that can be tracked over time. Where possible, this plan uses readily available metrics so that the WH-CEC can easily update the plan each year.
The plan will be available for download soon.
