Abstract

This Interactive Qualifying Project Report assists Holden, Massachusetts in meeting the requirements of Massachusetts’ Green Communities Act. Using the data collected from town officials on energy usage, we are able to identify which buildings would be targets to implement energy saving measures. By touring Town owned buildings, it became clear that lighting changes are the best way to reduce Holden's energy consumption. We demonstrate Holden’s progress on each criterion, and what can yet be done to reach the overall goal.
