Sen. Chang-Díaz pushes for Solar for All legislation at briefing

Sep 13, 2017

Massachusetts has over 100,000 clean energy jobs at 1600 megawatts of solar -- but many residents can't access the benefits of green energy. I spoke about these issues today at a legislative briefing on my bill, S.1831 An Act Relative to Solar Power in Environmental Justice and Urban Communities.

Sen. Sonia Chang-Diaz, D-Boston, a former Education Committee chair and a leader on education funding reform, said, “This bill stands as our commitment that, in Massachusetts, zip code must not be destiny.”

"Our session today continues nearly a half-century of work for educational equity. And this bill would not exist without the generations of Bay Staters who tirelessly and passionately kept the cause alive. Who saw the work ahead and never gave up, even when political insiders believed the issue was dead."

Fulfilling the promise of public education as the great equalizer is our next big goal. Bay Staters believe in it. It’s a goal our constitution anchors us to. Now, that collective effort in advocating, crafting policy, and working together has given us a chance to deliver on it.
