Our Story

Mount Wachusett Community College was at the forefront of the national climate movement when it converted its all-electric campus to biomass heating in 2002 to save on energy costs and reduce its carbon footprint. The tremendous success of that initiative led to other renewable solutions including solar and wind energy. A charter signatory of the American College and University Presidents’ Climate Commitment, MWCC demonstrates how an institution can invest in clean energy, elevate awareness about the need for alternative energy solutions in the U.S., and ultimately help address the global climate crisis.
