In the spirit of the summer, the USGBC MA Chapter held a BBQ along the Charles River at the new North Point Park. Hosted by Zapotec Energy, our advocacy committee joined in to answer any and all questions about net metering and solar power in the state. With food, friends and fun, not to mention beautiful summer weather!

Complete streets, sustainable parking policies and best practices, downtown and regional mobility, transit-oriented development, and transportation demand management will be discussed.
The Green Apple Day of Service is an international day of service, coordinated by the US Green Building Council’s Center for Green Schools. Every year, students, teachers, business owners, local government officials and community volunteers come together to make our schools healthier, cleaner and greener places to learn, work and play. We even offer mini-grants to many schools in the Commonwealth.
