'Tis the season for New Years Resolutions—maybe yours is to take shorter showers to save water or remember to turn the thermostat down before you leave the house to keep the heating bill low.
If that’s the case, they wouldn’t be too far off from Governor Charlie Baker’s, whose resolution seems to be getting a coherent solar energy policy out of the legislature.
WGBH News State House reporter Mike Deehan sat down recently with Governor Baker to discuss how he’s attempting to balance consumer costs and climate change concerns when cobbling together the state’s “combo platter” of energy options—including natural gas, solar, and Canadian hydro—for the new year. Mike sat down with reporter Adam Reilly and WGBHNews.org Senior Editor Peter Kadzis to break it all down.
