Somerville Commission on Energy Use and Climate Change Seeks One Member

Open Positions: One
Term: Serving the remainder of a term through February 29, 2024, with possible reappointment for a three-year term.

The City of Somerville’s Commission on Energy Use and Climate Change (CEUCC) seeks one new member, and all Somerville residents are invited to apply. Applicants should have a background in climate or environmental justice, equity, and/or working with marginalized communities. Boards and commissions offer an opportunity for residents with a range of experience, skills, expertise, and perspectives to share their talents and insights with their community.

The CEUCC advises the City and the Mayor’s Office of Sustainability and Environment on climate change and energy policy issues and assists the City with related program design and outreach. In the past, for example, the Commission has advised the City on energy performance of city buildings, community choice aggregation of electricity, and residential solar. Upcoming topics will include the Somerville Climate Forward update, local, state, and federal policy, innovative sustainability practices, and climate equity. 

The CEUCC typically meets on the second Tuesday of the month from 7 to 8:30 p.m. This is a volunteer position. CEUCC members are confirmed by the City Council.

Applications are due Monday, April 18. Interested candidates should submit a statement of interest and resume to ose@somervillema.gov with the subject line “Commission Application” or by mail to 50 Evergreen Avenue, Somerville, MA 02145, ATTN: Director, Office of Sustainability and Environment. Please contact Christine Blais at cblais@somervillema.gov or 781-296-7194 with questions.
