Another bill scheduled for a hearing on September 20 by the Telecommunications, Utilities and Energy Committee would create a state Green Bank that would invest in green businesses, promote research in clean tech and contribute toward an equitable energy transition by advancing workforce training in clean energy.
“We introduced this bill prior to Gov. Healey announcing the Massachusetts Community Climate Bank, which is the nation’s first green bank dedicated to affordable housing,” said sponsor Rep. Dylan Fernandes (D-Falmouth). “These complementary efforts underscore the multi-faceted approach needed to secure a sustainable future.”
