20% by 2010 Clean Energy Campaign Progress:

The Town of Mansfield uses 6,000 MWh of electricity per year for all municipal facilities. Therefore, their 20% clean energy use target is 1,200 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). Mansfield has yet to make a voluntary clean energy purchase.

Town Description:

Mansfield is the home town of the University of Connecticut.

Incorporated in 1702, the Town of Mansfield was part of a tract of land acquired from the Mohegans by a group of settlers in Norwich. Most of the first settlers were farmers, and Mansfield has remained largely a rural town. Rivers powered saw mills and grist mills from the early days, and during the nineteenth century mainly textiles, but also steel products, bits and augers, bells, bronze cannons, gunpowder, and organ pipes, were manufactured in Mansfield. The first silk mill in the United States was built at Hanks Hill in 1810, and for many years, Mansfield led the country in silk production.

Today, Mansfield serves as a regional cultural center with its many theater, music, and museum programs. Come and enjoy the beauty and historic traditions that the Town of Mansfield has offered for more than 300 years.

Itís one of the most powerful things an individual can do to address big, overwhelming issues like air pollution and global warming. And itís so easy. In fact, we signed up for another electric meter for the barn and woodworking shop on our rental property."
Lynn Stoddard
Resident
