20% by 2010 Clean Energy Campaign Progress:

The Town of Hamden uses 18,000 MWh of electricity per year for all municipal facilities. Therefore, their 20% clean energy use target is 3,600 MWh in 2010. To date, they have met approximately 8% of that goal through the mandatory amount as required by the state Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS). Hamden has yet to make a voluntary clean energy purchase.

Town Description:

Hamden is a lovely community of neighborhoods, a New England town, which perfectly blends urban and suburban living. With affordable homes, highly respected schools including a state-of-the-art high school, with a landscape rich in hills and walking trails and an abundance of shops and restaurants, Hamden is a wonderful place to live and an alluring place to visit.

"[The 20% by 2010 Campaign] will promote a healthier environment with the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and enable the town to take advantage of the offer of free solar energy arrays for its public buildings saving taxpayer dollars. All Hamden residents should consider opting for the clean energy alternative for their homes."
Carl J. Amento
Former Mayor of Hamden
"By choosing to pay a very small premium, we can all make a difference for healthier, sustainable living."
