About

The Stow Energy Working Group is a group of town residents interested in taking positive actions to reduce individual and town energy consumption as well as looking at other steps we can take collectively to build a more sustainable community.

The types of activities we have been involved in include:

  • Stow Solar Challenge
  • Green Communities designation
  • Conducting energy audits of the town buildings (municipal, highway, fire and police)
  • Holding informational open forums.  Topics have included home energy savings, solar, electric vehicles, residential heat pumps.

History

In 2007, at a forum on wind energy Sharon Brownfield and Arnie Epstein meet and agreed that a group in Stow was needed to help direct activity around environmental issues.  Working through the town selectman, a working group was formed reporting to Bill Wrigley, the town administrator.  Initially the group was focused on completing audits of all the town buildings starting with the town municipal building.
