Regional Forum on Comprehensive Energy Plan

Vermont’s 2011 Comprehensive Energy Plan (CEP) lays out an ambitious but critical goal to meet 90 percent of Vermont’s energy needs in 2050 from renewable energy resources.

To ensure that all Vermonters are aware of the CEP — and working together to help meet the goal — VNRC is co-hosting a regional forum in Rutland with a focus on this long-range plan, which serves as a roadmap for saving energy, boosting production from local, renewable energy resources and realigning our transportation and land use priorities.

Please join VNRC, the state’s regional planning commissions and members of Vermont’s Climate Cabinet — Department of Public Service Commissioner Liz Miller and Agency of Natural Resource Secretary Deb Markowitz! 

The goals of the forum is to:

  • Update Vermonters on the progress made over the past year in implementing the Comprehensive Energy Plan.
  • Solicit guidance and input from participants on current and proposed implementation strategies.
  • Offer concrete projects that grassroots leaders, key stakeholders, and interested Vermonters can undertake to help achieve the goals of the CEP, such as saving money, generating more renewable energy in Vermont, fostering more transportation choices and more.

Here are the details:

November 1 — Rutland Free Library — 6-9 p.m. Co-hosted by the Rutland Regional Planning Commission, Addison County Regional Planning Commission and Bennington County Regional Commission.
