The Lincoln Green Energy Technology Committee seeks to assess interest in launching a program to help make residential solar energy affordable for homeowners. Please take a brief survey at:  surveymonkey.com/s/M7TD9CM or send comments to:  communications@greeninglincoln.org

The Green Energy Technology Committee (GETC) has developed the website as a ‘hub’ to support Lincoln residents in several areas: energy efficiency, sustainable landscaping, local food, recycling, transportation, and household products.  Resource lists, contact information, and helpful tips are included for each area.  The site also lists upcoming events in and around Lincoln that will inspire you and connect you with others who share your goals.

Partnering with other conservation-oriented organizations in town, the website draws on the expertise of many Lincoln residents.  Members of the Lincoln Garden Club, the Lincoln Land Conservation Trust, the Recycling Committee, and the new Agricultural Commission have all contributed information and ideas.  The committee is actively seeking participation by teachers and students in the Lincoln schools.

John Snell, Chair of GETC, said, “We urge everyone in Lincoln to visit the site and explore all the sustainability categories. We welcome your comments and questions and site moderators will make every effort to respond promptly.”

The website is run by volunteers.  To create a new category or lend your expertise to the existing ones, please go to the Join Us section of the site. 

The Green Energy Technology Committee (GETC), which supports GreeningLincoln.org, was created by the Lincoln Board of Selectmen to promote energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies throughout the town.  It carries out Lincoln’s commitments as a designated Massachusetts Green Community. GETC also participates in the Massachusetts Climate Action Network, a coalition of locally organized groups in Massachusetts fighting the climate crisis.
