This emailed memo came today from the now former chair of the Medfield Energy Committee, Fred Bunger, who is moving to Wellesley to be nearer to family. Medfield benefited hugely from Fred’s excellent, thoughtful, and persistent stewardship of the MEC. Fred engineered the town becoming a Green Community last year, with all that entails, including the receipt of a $148,000 DOER grant and the development of a plan to reduce the town’s future energy consumption by 20% – a reduction which is over an above the 30% reduction that the MEC had already helped the town achieve under the original MEC Chair, Marie Zack Nolan. That grant money is now being used to undertake a recommissioning of the HVAC controls at the Medfield High School and the Blake Middle School, the town’s two biggest energy users, so as to make both operate more efficiently.
