ECCE has developed sustainability goals for the Town of Essex. Sustainability is defined as meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
In October, 2012, the Town of Essex signed the Clean Energy Communities Municipal Pledge to reduce energy use.
We are reviewing the electrical and fuel oil consumption in town buildings. Also, we would like to increase the amount of household hazardous waste and recyclables collected.

We now have 260 points in the CT Clean Energy Options program. Our thanks to all of the residents, organizations, and businesses that have enrolled. Above is the 2 kw solar array that was installed at the Recycling Center in 2008.
When we reach 300 points, we can get a 2kWh solar array to install on a public building!
