AIM Supports

Effective Government programs that  have a positive cost-benefit and assist our members to achieve sustainability goals. These laws should encourage innovation in clean energy and clean production without excessive mandates and allow Massachusetts to be a leader in technological advances that go beyond federal and state requirements whenever possible.

Policy Watch

Increasing access to solar energy

Allow companies that install onsite solar the ability to generate more energy credits to be used when the solar panels are not generating, allowing companies to use the benefits of solar power to lower costs and reduce emissions.

Classifying hydro power as renewable

Remove the size limitation on hydropower so that all forms of hydropower will be considered as renewable. Do not, however, allow large hydropower to obtain ratepayer subsidies that smaller hydropower and other existing renewable power receives.

Department of Public Utilities

The Massachusetts Department of Public Utilities controls rate increases that distribution companies receive. AIM is often the only trade association at the table, submitting briefs and testifying.

"AIM's Energy and Environment Committee identifies and analyzes legislative, regulatory and administrative issues impacting energy supply, energy cost and the competitive market."
