The ceremony was highlighted by keynote speaker Lynne Hamjian, the deputy director of the office of ecosystem protection for the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) New England. Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) Commissioner Robert Klee was also in attendance to congratulate the participants. David McHale from Eversource, Patrick McDonnell from The United Illuminating Company and Bryan Garcia from the Connecticut Green Bank were there as well to honor these outstanding communities.
