On Thursday, a number of local partners announced the launch of a new climate initiative. AMPED is aimed at promoting the use of carbon-free electricity to power the region’s buildings and vehicles. According to AMPED’s leaders, about three quarters of the region’s climate-changing greenhouse gas emissions come from buildings and transportation.
