Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker held an event at  WinnCompanies property to announce the launch of a new initiative and $15 million in funding to help low- and moderate-income Massachusetts residents access cost-saving, clean and efficient energy technologies.

“A big part of this is trying to find a way to make clean energy resources more available to low and moderate income populations… to basically increase energy affordability,” said Baker at WinnCompanies’ Boott Mills campus in Lowell, MA, where solar energy is currently being harvested and shared with those in need in the neighboring city of Lawrence, MA.

“The roof of Boott Mills has 435 solar panels and 100% of that solar output will benefit affordable housing,” said Darien Crimmin, VP of Energy & Sustainability, WinnCompanies.
