The Massachusetts Clean Energy Center (MassCEC), in partnership with the City of Holyoke, undertook a study to identify, assess and analyze potential reuses of the Mt. Tom Power Plant site. The Mt. Tom Power Plant shut down its coal-fired operations in 2014 after over 40 years of power generation on the site.

The goals of the study were to:
•Illustrate the challenges and opportunities related to the redevelopment of the site;
•Provide residents opportunities to weigh in on principles that should guide its reuse; and
•Provide the community with feasible reuse options to inform future discussions about development.

The study’s ultimate aim was to help facilitate an informed, productive discussion between the site owner and the community.
