The Climate and Energy Advisory Committee is appointed to assist the Town through its Select Board in carrying out the vision and initiatives to implement the Town’s strategies for energy conservation, clean energy, green community initiatives and planning for energy sustainability for the Town. The Committee will also assist the Town in assessing the climate change impacts to the Town’s infrastructure, environment and socio-economic systems and evaluate community resiliency strategies for adapting to sea level rise and climate change in a manner that helps to strengthen the community.

The Committee shall be responsible for recommending an energy management plan to the Select Board for their consideration to develop and support the goals of energy conservation and climate stewardship by the Town of Oak Bluffs.
