Massachusetts Aims for Critical Care Resiliency
Massachusetts is offering $14 million in grants for energy resiliency projects aimed at critical care facilities.
The grants are part of the $40 million Community Clean Energy Resiliency Initiative (CCERI). The overall goal of CCERI is to protect participating entities from service interruption due to severe weather conditions. This is the initiative’s third round of funding.
The press release says that the grants will fund resiliency feasibility studies at state facilities and fund public and private projects. In addition, the Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources (DOER) will develop an interactive online tool to examine climate and resiliency vulnerabilities and assist in identifying future funding priorities.
The Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court on August 17 struck down a mechanism under which electrical ratepayers in the Bay State would foot the bill for natural gas pipeline expansion. The plan had been characterized as a “pipeline tax.”
