  • Progress in Installed Renewables, 2008-2017 and
  • Massachusetts Energy Consumption by residential, transportation, commercial, and industrial users

Massachusetts is at the end of the energy pipeline and imports all of its fossil fuel-based energy sources.

Energy efficiency is our first fuel, solar capacity is booming, 50 percent of residents now live in designated Green Communities and clean energy jobs are growing by double digits.
