Nantucket, Massachusetts


While the Nantucket Energy Plan was designed to promote conservation and efficient energy usage, the strategies described in the plan are currently too generic to fit the Island's specific energy demands. Our goal for this project was to perform a thorough analysis of the Nantucket Energy Plan and suggest an appropriate course of action for the town. We conducted extensive research on the cost, energy savings, and acceptability for a select group of energy options. Using the information we collected, we identified the most feasible options and made recommendations for how the town should proceed with implementation.
