LISTEN: A-Town: Where does Arlington’s green energy come from?

Whether you’ve lived in Arlington your whole life or just for a few years, there’s probably something around town that has made you wonder. The Arlington Advocate’s new Wicked Local podcast, A-Town, seeks to answer those questions.

In 2017 Arlington launched Community Choice Aggregation, an energy program that allows communities to bulk purchase green energy, ultimately reducing the cost of renewable energy. Arlington’s energy is supplied by Dynegy, an energy company based out of Texas. But, if Dynegy is located almost 2,000 miles away, where does Arlington’s green energy come from? We sat down with Erin Taylor (ET) from Mass Energy and Anne Wright from Mothers Out Front to find out.
