Nantucket, Massachusetts


As the summer demand for electricity on Nantucket approaches the supply capabilities of the two undersea cables that power the island, residents of Nantucket face the possibility of having to finance a third cable. The goal of this project was to assist the Town of Nantucket Energy Office in identifying ways to increase public awareness about cost saving and energy reduction initiatives. Through surveys and interviews we evaluated residents’ knowledge and receptiveness toward energy and energy saving programs. We recommend that the Town Energy Office work with local stakeholders to distribute information and hold events that promote energy saving initiatives and drafted informational materials that the Town Energy Office may use in the future.
