West Hartford

Clean Energy Commission

In 2005 West Hartford appointed an ad-hoc Clean Energy Task Force (WH-CETF). In 2017, the Town Council recognized the task force's "continuing and evolving role in the Town’s efforts to be energy efficient" and established the West Hartford Clean Energy Commission (WH-CEC).

  • promotes the use of clean energy,
  • assists the Town in achieving energy consumption reduction goals, and
  • recovers any financial, (environmental, and educational) benefits from doing so.

Join us!

The WH-CEC has eight members, as listed below. However, our meetings are open to all. We welcome anyone who wants to work together to achieve our goals of making West Hartford a cleaner and greener place to live!

Come to our next meeting to see what it is all about. We meet once a month in Town Hall. See our calendar below for meeting dates.
