About QCAN

Quincy Climate Action Network is a group of Quincy residents and others taking action against climate change. Knowing that we must act locally to meet this global challenge, QCAN has been monitoring our city government’s progress towards greater energy efficiency, working to put more solar panels on city rooftops, and empowering Quincy residents to lower their electric bills — among many other activities.

Please join us in our effort to be the Cleaner, Greener Community we know we CAN be!

Mission Statement: QCAN works to preserve and protect both the coastal environment and the global environment for future generations by promoting energy conservation, energy efficiency, and the use of renewable energy by private citizens, business, and government. We will accomplish this through direct action, education and advocacy.

Background: Quincy Climate Action Network came together in early 2012 in response to two events: the city’s abandonment of plans for a 1.5 megawatt wind turbine and a draft ordinance that would severely restrict residential solar energy in the city.
