Regional Solar Initiative: Metropolitan Area Planning Council

This case study walks you through Metropolitan Area Planning Council’s (MAPC) achievements and lessons learned, in regards to their Regional Solar Initiative. As the regional council for Boston, MA, MAPC undertakes regional energy projects that help communities get lower pricing and better quality service by bringing them together to obtain energy-related goods and services. One current project is the Regional Solar Initiative. Through this initiative, MAPC brought together six communities to assess their potential for renewable energy development. In this way, the municipalities do not have to shoulder the risks of owning and maintaining solar systems of their own. Learn more about how MAPC supports regional energy development in this case study.
