Green mag touts Plymouth Rock Studios

Plymouth's recently approved movie studio is given the once-over by E magazine — not because of its economic benefits to Massachusetts but because of its "green" qualities:

A few weeks before the [town meeting vote approving the project], Plymouth Rock Studios announced it had registered its entire development project with the United States Green Building Council (USGBC) and would be pursuing Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification. This means that Plymouth Rock Studios, slated to open in 2010, will be the world’s first totally green movie studio.

Ironically, the cover story for this issue of E is about wind power, where Massachusetts hasn't been such a great leader.

The Massachusetts film industry has been given a boost by a tax credit program covered last year by CommonWealth magazine.
