Meet the organizer

Meet Brad, your community organizer! He is here to help create community-specific goals, facilitate educational activities, and identify efficiency opportunities for residents, businesses, municipalities, and non-profits. Brad has been living in the Mad River Valley for over twenty years, so this community is his home and he’s pretty darn excited to work with everyone and provide these services and opportunities to his neighbors! You can catch him at our upcoming events or email him here.


Why the Mad River Valley?

Each year, a new community is selected to receive special services and programs from Efficiency Vermont. This initiative is coordinated by Efficiency Vermont and key stakeholders including the Vermont Council on Rural Development, Vermont Energy & Climate Action Network (VECAN), Vermont Electric Co-op, Washington Electric Co-op, Green Mountain Power, Vermont Public Power Supply Authority (VPPSA), and the Vermont Agency of Commerce and Community Development. When new communities are chosen, Efficiency Vermont works with partner organizations in the community to present special events and deliver customized energy efficiency solutions. The new 2021 communities are two resort-area communities that have been hit hard by the economic impacts of COVID-19. We will be working together to meet individual and community efficiency and resilience goals. Thanks for letting us spend time with you in 2021!
