As a Green Community, Lenox received grant funding from the state, and the town has invested a portion of this funding into a grant program to help residents install solar on their homes. With neighboring Pittsfield, Lenox is also participating in the SolarizeMass program, a partnership between the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center, the Green Communities Division of the Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources, and participating communities around the state.
