20% by 2010 Clean Energy Campaign Progress:

The Town of Branford uses over 11,020,000 kWh of electricity per year for all municipal facilities. Therefore, their 20% clean energy use target is 2,204,000 kWh in 2010. To date, they have met approximately 2% of that goal through the mandatory amount that is required by the state Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS). Branford has yet to make a voluntary clean energy purchase.

Town Description:

With 20 miles of coastline on Long Island Sound and more than 4,000 acres of protected open and/or undeveloped space, Branford is home to a great variety of scenery and habitats. There are endless opportunities to enjoy the outdoors, from hiking and cycling to kayaking the scenic Branford River. It is a vital community with a strong economic base, low taxes, and excellent schools and municipal services. One of the greatest assets of the town is the spirit of volunteerism and civic involvement -- citizens working together to make Branford an active and caring community in which to live.
