The 100% Renewable Energy resolution will be submitted to the town as a warrant article, or a proposal that goes before the voters at Town Meeting. Here is the 100% Renewable Energy Warrant Article that Peterborough Energy Action will ask to go on the ballot.
Before Town Meeting, the warrant article will go through several steps. In March, it will be submitted to the town as a petition with at least 25 residents’ signatures. Then in April, the town will hold a Deliberative Session where residents can ask questions and offer amendments to the warrant article.
The Select Board will then vote on whether to recommend the adoption of the warrant article. Finally, it will go before the voters at Town Meeting in May.
Peterborough’s Town Meeting has 2 parts - a ballot vote on the 2nd Tuesday in May and an Open Session the following day at which residents discuss the remaining warrant articles and vote on them in person. We don’t know yet whether the 100% Renewable warrant article will be decided at the ballot box or at Open Session as this is up to the discretion of the Select Board.
