The Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs Leading by Example Program Award Recipient

MWRA was honored by the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs for its renewable energy, efficiency, and recycling efforts. EOEEA received 22 Leading by Example Award Applications, and MWRA was one of six awardees selected. A number of efforts by MWRA were cited, including MWRA’s on-site generation and renewable energy generation on Deer Island, the recent award of a design/build contract for solar panels at Deer Island, the exploration of other opportunities for solar, wind, and hydroelectric power at a number of facilities, recycling efforts, and its alternative fuel vehicles and diesel retrofits.

MWRA staff that accepted the award included Fred Laskey, Kevin Feeley, Kristen Patneaude, Charlie Coppola, Marie DeVito and Pam Heidell. Many more, though, throughout the Authority are key to MWRA’s sustainability efforts. Congratulations to all and keep up the good work.
