SHREWSBURY – Shrewsbury has been awarded $185,000 as part of the governor’s Green Communities grant program.

The grants are meant to “provide financial support for energy efficiency and renewable energy projects that further the designated communities’ clean energy goals.” Shrewsbury was one of 27 communities to receive the grant; Marlborough, Northborough and Southborough also received funding. 

“The Green Communities program helps our cities and towns make important investments at the local level to achieve their own climate goals and lower carbon emissions,” Energy and Environmental Affairs Secretary Rebecca Tepper said in a press release. “This moves us forward on our clean energy path and lessens our reliance on volatile fossil fuels, lowering costs and risks for our communities and their residents and businesses.”
