Climate Change Mitigation

We are reducing the greenhouse gasses produced by Wellfleet by:

    • 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

We are planning for and responding to the inevitable flooding due to storm surges and sea-level rise by:

    • Working with the Cape Cod Commission on a vulnerabilities assessment grant.
