CLEAN ENERGY FOR A HEALTHY BELMONT

Congratulations Belmont! We're Making Great Strides to Reduce Carbon Emissions.

Belmont's commitment to reduce carbon emissions is impressive. Thanks to the very successful Electric Vehicle program, Belmont has one of the highest rates of electric car adoption in Massachusetts. With over 325 homes using solar power, Belmont has the most solarized homes in the state. Belmont Light is committed to use more electricity from carbon-free sources, and the town is planning  for energy-efficiency in new buildings. 


THERE IS MUCH MORE WE NEED TO DO

THE MOST EFFECTIVE WAY TO REDUCE BELMONT'S CARBON EMISSIONS BY 80% BY 2050

IS TO ELECTRIFY EVERYTHING  


Solarize your home

Drive electric cars

Use a heat pump to heat and cool your home

Support clean electricity

Electrically-driven heat pumps provide high efficiency home heating and cooling. When powered by carbon-free electricity they allow for heating and cooling that is emissions-free.  Belmont Light offers grants to support the installation of air-source heat pumps.  April 2019 will see the launch of HeatSmart Belmont, a community based education, outreach and group purchasing campaign aimed at increasing adoption of air source heat pumps.  More details to come soon!
