Municipal Energy Coordinators and Committees

Town Energy Committees are implementing on-the-ground energy innovation projects in their communities. They are also helping Vermont meet its important Greenhouse Gas Reduction goal and 90 by 2050, all-sector renewable energy goals. These volunteer groups are working with municipal officials, schools, businesses, and neighbors to get buildings weatherized, solar projects electrified, heat pumps installed, transportation options expanded and far more.

ACRPC is organizing a series of workshops in 2020- information from the meetings can be found in the Energy Section of our Library webpage here.

To see other upcoming Energy events, check the calendar here (VECAN), and join the email discussion group list here

In Addison County, several Energy Committees have webpages with more information, including Bristol (webpage), Middlebury (webpage), Monkton (webpage), Starksboro (webpage), Weybridge (facebook). Several other municipalities also have Energy Committees or Coordinators- to check if yours does, check the map here.
