  • Topic #1: Recommendations for re-thinking how our utility systems get planned and how we pay for our energy
  • Topic #2: Concerns related to assumptions in the consultant’s analysis that treat “renewable natural gas” (RNG) as a completely emissions-neutral fuel and overestimate the supply of RNG that will be available to Massachusetts in the future
