Solar Panels on Roof

Take Our Clean Tech Survey

Green Maynard would like to learn more about what clean technology residents are using in their homes—from heat pumps and solar energy to electric vehicles and induction stoves. We’re also seeking volunteers who would be willing to serve as a “coach” for other residents interested in installing clean tech in their own homes.

Calling All Kids

Are you a curious kid who loves nature and wants to learn how to protect and cherish our planet earth? Join Green Maynard for our first meeting of Sprouts, a family-friendly, kid-focused environmental group. Saturday, June 15, 1 p.m., at the Assabet Co-op. Please register for Sprouts.

Nature's Best Hope​​​​

If you missed entomologist and ecologist Doug Tallamy's talk, sponsored by the Library and the Maynard Council on Aging, you can watch it on YouTube! Learn what to plant and what to remove to create a "Homegrown National Park" in your yard (no matter how big or how small) to help establish a network of viable, vital habitats and support the foundational insects that support our food web.

        to Stop Hanscom
Expansion

Hanscom Field developers have submitted their Draft Environmental Impact Report to the Massachusetts Environmental Policy Act Office. This is a critical time to send a message to Governor Healey’s administration via public comment—and numbers matter. It takes only a few minutes to do! The expansion of the civil airbase to accommodate more private jets threatens to negate the total combined greenhouse gas reductions that Massachusetts is working to achieve.

Partnership with EnergySage

Green Maynard has partnered with Energy Sage, a nationally recognized independent consultant that can help homeowners find the best solar and heat pump solutions. It offers educational resources, calculators, and marketplaces to help you learn about and shop for solar and heat pumps. These services are completely free and 100 percent online.

Per our partnership with EnergySage, consumers who sign up through Green Maynard and complete the installation process with an EnergySage rooftop solar installer will receive $200, or $75 when subscribing to a community solar farm on EnergySage. Homeowners who select an EnergySage heat pump installer will receive $100. (Green Maynard does not receive revenue through this partnership.)

Compost Your Food Waste

If you don't compost at home, use an at-home compost bin from the Town of Maynard, or you'd like to compost items like meat and dairy, Black Earth is Maynard's compost collection option. With all the other items you can compost with Black Earth, you can reduce your landfill waste and save money on trash stickers. (And if enough residents sign up, the price of pickup will come down.)
