SM Position on Peaker Plant


Sustainable Marblehead recognizes MMWEC’s obligation to provide adequate power to meet peak demand. At the same time, the cost and capacity of battery storage has changed dramatically during the six years since the project was first designed in 2015. Click here for recent article. 


We request that MMWEC further pause this project and allow for third-party analysis.

Trees and ARPA Funding

As WickeLocal.com reported, Sustainable Marblehead’s Tree group has asked the Board of Selectmen to allocate a portion of the American Rescue Plan Act COVID relief funding to create a public tree management and implementation plan, as well as funding more tree planting in 2022. Towns like Salem and Newton are doing this. Marblehead’s ARPA working group is considering uses for our $6 million in ARPA funds. If you agree with Sustainable Marblehead’s tree request, please send ARPA working group members an email, along these lines.
