    Pilgrim Nuclear Plant (Carbon Free Power) to Close 2019

    Communities are not pulling its own weight on energy production As a resident of Plymouth, I feel that many communities have gotten a free ride on energy production. NIMBY attitudes in MA toward energy production runs deep. Many communities still have yet to produce a single solar field/wind...

    Big Party for Tesla owners, fans, environmentalists & legislators / fundraiser

    The word tax or fee is a hotly contested subject in itself; I'll leave it to the Massachusetts General Court to settle that debate. There are many ideas on reducing carbon emissions; I was only highlighting a different approach. Good luck on your event.

    Big Party for Tesla owners, fans, environmentalists & legislators / fundraiser

    Carbon taxes are essentially a consumption tax. I could support some form of tax reform compromise which includes carbon taxes with a reduction of personal income, corporate, and capital gains tax. I believe you could receive a broader support in the Massachusetts business community if your...

    This Tesla (barely) climbed Mt. Washington - News and reviews - Boston.com I do believe a Supercharger in Northern New Hampshire would solve the problem, somewhere at the Junction of 16 & 302. People do just day trips. Frankly, I do believe he tested insane mode several times....

    I know Ed spoke with the Auburn inspector as well. Once he files a complaint to the State about the disconnect issue, it could stall both Superchargers. I very disappointed.

    Supercharger - Sagamore Beach, MA
