Quincy Climate Action Network came together in early 2012 in response to the city’s abandonment of plans for a 1.5 megawatt wind turbine on Moon Island.
Q-CAN has one goal: to promote energy conservation, energy efficiency, and the use of renewable energy by government, business, and private citizens — our neighbors. Since our founding we have made our views known in the media and in several meetings with city officials. In addition, many QCAN members serve on the mayor’s Climate Change Committee, finding ways to reduce fossil fuel usage and increase the production of clean renewable energy in our city.
As always, we welcome Quincy residents and others to our monthly meetings, and we are looking for new members to bring the ideas and energy to our projects and endeavors. For more information or to join, please contact info@QuincyCAN.org.
