We are working in two areas:

  • Climate Change Mitigation – reducing the greenhouse gasses produced by Wellfleet.

At the moment, our active projects include:

    • Installing solar panels at the capped landfill to produce energy for the Town of Wellfleet and the Nauset Regional School District
    • Understanding greenhouse gas emissions produced in Wellfleet as part of our effort for the Global Covenant of Mayors
    • Participating, with Eastham, Truro, and Provincetown in “Outer Cape Energize”, a public outreach and education program to a) conserve energy, install solar on homes and businesses, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. 
  • Climate Change Adaptation – planning for and responding to the inevitable flooding due to storm surges and sea-level rise.
