Our Energy Future
The Starksboro Energy Committee hopes you can join us for a public forum on energy issues on Friday, September 14, 7:00 p.m. at the Starksboro Public Library. We’ll hear from three town residents who have been actively engaged at the local and state level. We’ll then open up the discussion to hear what energy issues are of interest to you. Refreshments will be served.
At the state level, we’ll hear from Governor’s Climate Action Commission member Robert Turner about their recently released report and recommendations. He’ll highlight the five focus areas of the report and comment on what opportunities may be available to Starksboro.
Next, Megan Nedzinski will summarize energy-related initiatives and recommendations included in the recently finalized Town Energy Plan and what it is going to take to meet Vermont’s goal of achieving 90% renewable energy by 2050.
Lastly, Richard Faesy will share some of the initiatives that the newly formed Starksboro Energy Committee is undertaking, including helping Robinson School reduce energy use and incorporate energy conservation into the curriculum and negotiating a solar-powered, emergency battery backup system for the town buildings. He’ll also highlight upcoming Button-Up events, efforts to install an electric vehicle charging station in town, an initiative to help improve mobile home energy efficiency, and efforts we as individuals can make to conserve energy and make the transition to more local and renewable energy.
We hope to see you on the 14th; remember to bring your ideas and questions and help us plan Starksboro’s energy future together. E-mail any questions or suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 802-355-9153.
