The West Hartford Clean Energy Task Force (WH-CETF) was created by Town Council in September 2005 to implement the town’s commitment to obtain 20% clean energy by the year 2010 and more broadly assist the town on energy-related matters. Our Task Force is comprised of volunteers, town employees, and town council members who work together to make West Hartford a cleaner and greener town and is always looking for new members to help us achieve our goals.
How to Get Involved - Join us! Come to our next meeting to see what this is all about. Email WH-CETF@yahoogroups.com or firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to our group and find out about our next meeting. We generally meet every month at Town Hall.
