About PACE
PACE is a public health and environmental organization formed in 1973 by a group of concerned Connecticut citizens to:
  • promote the development of alternative, renewable sources of energy,
  • encourage the efficient use of energy
  • develop a spirit of conservation among Connecticut residents
  • challenge Connecticut's commitment to nuclear power and nuclear weapons
PACE seeks to transition Connecticut to clean energy through grassroots education and advocacy. Through its 100PercentCT Project, PACE is developing viable plans for individual towns to move to 100% renewable energy. PACE is the largest all volunteer organization in the state engaged with these issues, and its members are active at public events, legislative hearings and environmental forums, both in person and on state and local television and radio. PACE is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization.
