Massachusetts House Speaker Robert DeLeo announced a proposal Friday to fund $1 billion of renewable energy and climate resiliency development in the Commonwealth over the next 10 years.

The proposal would help municipalities across the state adopt new energy and climate technologies, DeLeo said in a press release. The technologies could help reduce greenhouse gas emissions, improve infrastructure and reduce local government costs.
