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.


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