The Energy and Sustainability Department’s mission is to improve the energy efficiency of municipal properties and implement clean and renewable energy projects to achieve Green Community goals, the community’s vision for Sustainable Greenfield, and to expand Greenfield’s prominence as a leader in sustainability. Of equal significance is the compounding financial benefit of the Department’s efforts that leverage grants and utility incentives to fund projects. Each project results in short and long term savings that continue to grow as more projects are complete.
