The Middletown Clean Energy Taskforce has been working on many energy supply and conservation measures for the City of Middletown over the past 8 years. The Taskforce has been a leader in lowering the cost of electricity for municipal buildings; promoting solar power on City and Board of Education buildings and schools, respectively; advocating for a fuel cell as part of the plans for the Middletown High School; and, studying a variety of cutting edge technologies for city owned streetlights and Palmer Field stadium lighting. The Taskforce is also currently exploring the costs:benefits of municipal ownership of all city-wide streetlights and pursuing new community outreach initiatives. Middletown residents interested or with expertise in clean energy, energy conservation and/or emerging technologies (i.e., LED, induction) and who can assist the Taskforce are asked to contact the City. The Clean Energy Taskforce meets the third Wednesday of each month at 12:30 pm in city hall (lunch meetings). Meetings last no longer than 1.5 hours. If you have an interest in learning more about the many projects the Taskforce is now working on please call John Hall, Middletown's Energy Coordinator, at 860.344.3503.
