December 2015 -Stoughton has been designated a Green Community through the Massachusetts Green Communities Grant Program!
October 21, 2015- After five years of perseverance, the SESC has applied for the Massachusetts Green Communities Grant Program! The next step is to wait to hear from the State about a designation decision. What does this mean for Stoughton? If designated a Green Community, Stoughton will be awarded an amount of funds based on the population size, which we expect to be between $150-200K. These funds are used towards energy conservation projects in Stoughton. Many recommendations for these projects have been included in the Energy Reduction Plan that was written after The town was audited by several vendors. Designations will be announced later this year. Stay tuned, Stoughton!
