Gas utilities in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts are proposing to use variable renewable energy sources, particularly wind power, to produce green hydrogen to replace various proportions of fossil methane (natural gas), now burned for heat in 1.3 million homes and hundreds of thousands of commercial buildings across the Commonwealth.
