VEIC Meeting

Hi – I had a great meeting with Paul Markowitz from VEIC and he has a lot of ideas. I’m looking forward to discussing these with the rest of the team on Wednesday, June 17 at our next meeting.

  • Energy data: this will take some time, but I can pull data on municipal energy use. We would need to provide it to the municipality – as they are our customer.  For town-wide electrical usage, this data can be found here.
  • VECAN coordinator: I would suggest talking with Johanna Miller who works at VRNC and coordinates VECAN. She can be reached at jmiller@vnrc.org
  • Landlord/rental study; Attached is a report on the Burlington rental market and efficiency.
  • Strategic action toolkit: I forgot to mention it – but this is a good resource on setting priorities. The link can be found here.
  • Home energy visits: I mentioned a program where volunteers conduct home energy visits to help folks identify energy saving opportunities in the home.  Information about that program and other outreach programs can be found here.
  • Senior presentations:  we have done presentations for seniors on saving energy and provided free CFLs to distribute. This is a great activity at a senior meal site at the conclusion of the meal. It lasts about 30 minutes.  Attached is the presentation.
