Blow winds, blow

The signing of contracts this week to implement a Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) plan for Harvard is a feather in the cap of the Harvard Energy Advisory Committee and the town officials who helped make it a reality. It’s an achievement that benefits the town and the planet.

One might lament that it’s taken nearly three years to put a plan in place, but the wait had the unintended benefit of lowering prices for both the default 100% wind-generated renewable option and a “lowest-cost” alternative approved Tuesday by the Select Board.

By purchasing energy in bulk for the town and committing to three-year contracts, the CCA working group has achieved rates that are lower than those of the supplier used by most homes and businesses in Harvard. And by accepting the default option for pennies more a month than the lowest-cost option, customers can power their computers, appliances, lights, and other gadgets using electricity generated by wind turbines as far away as Texas.

The beauty of the renewable plan goes beyond its dollars and cents savings. The option lowers Harvard’s carbon footprint and supports the growth of an industry that seems both essential and inevitable as the consequences of a changing climate force changes to our way of life. There’s no easier way to go green than signing on to this program.

It’s a proud day for Harvard, and a time to celebrate the town’s hard-working, persistent energy committee. A round of applause, please.
