What we do - as individuals, in groups like Green Needham and as a community - has local, regional, national and even global impact.  See the local impact, in our conversation with the Selectmen about becoming a Green Community.  Then join us Monday, December 13th, to learn about the global impact of our choices on energy and national security
December Meeting - Energy Security and National Security
How are the decisions we are making today on energy and climate - locally and nationally - vital to our future national security?

Please join us for a discussion about energy security and national security led by two young American veterans at our
meeting on Monday December 13th in the Community Room of the Needham Public Library at 7:30 pmView our blog for more information.
High Rock School Solar Panels Paying Off
Were you one of the over 250 Needham residents who contributed to the Community Solar Challenge?  The solar panels we earned through the Challenge are installed and generating electricity at the High Rock School. See the data and take pride in what a community working together can do - and did!
One step closer to becoming a Green Community
With a presentation from Green Needham, the Board of Selectmen took up the question of becoming a Green Community at their November 23rd meeting.  See the presentation and the Selectmen's discussion and read the Needham Times article.

When a town makes the energy-reduction commitments necessary to become a Green Community, many benefits follow: decrease in the emission of greenhouse gases, reduction of health care cost for diseases related to air pollution, economic benefits from green jobs and green developments, and improved quality of life among residents. And, it will save the town lots of money.
Temple Aliyah Energy Fair

This will be a fun, educational event for the whole family. For more information, please check the event flyer online.
