Efficiency Vermont applauds work of Vermont Climate Council
With today’s release of the Vermont Climate Action Plan, Efficiency Vermont joins other clean energy partners in congratulating the Vermont Climate Council on reaching this important milestone.
“We appreciate the hard work that has gone into the creation of this important plan. As the state’s energy efficiency utility for the past 20 years, our work has long been aligned with the reduction of GHG emissions and the need to act urgently,” said Carol Weston, Director of Efficiency Vermont. “As Vermont’s most cost-effective greenhouse gas reduction program, we look forward to being a central partner in bringing this plan to life as quickly as possible, so we can meet emission reductions goals and help all Vermonters – especially those who are most vulnerable – adapt to the impacts of climate change.”
Through its work as a statewide Energy Efficiency Utility, Efficiency Vermont has developed working relationships with supply chain partners, supported workforce development through its Efficiency Excellence network, and in a typical year helps nearly 50,000 residents and 8,000 businesses lower their energy costs and reduce their carbon footprints. Since its inception in 2000, Efficiency Vermont has helped Vermonters make energy efficiency investments that will save $2.8 billion and avoid more than 12.5 million metric tons of CO2e over the life those investments.
