Efficiency Vermont seeks new Director

Winooski, VT

Efficiency Vermont Managing Director Carol Weston is resigning her position to pursue a new opportunity outside of Vermont, and the state’s 20-year-old efficiency utility will launch an external search to fill Weston’s position. You can find the posting here.

“We’re so grateful to have had Carol’s leadership as the Managing Director of Efficiency Vermont,” VEIC CEO Rebecca Foster stated, “and we’re looking forward to bringing in a new Managing Director to lead Efficiency Vermont as we continue our work to save Vermonters money and support our state’s clean energy goals.”

Weston joined Efficiency Vermont in 2011. As Managing Director, Weston supported:

• Enabling a reduction to the 2022 Energy Efficiency Charge paid by Vermont electric customers.
• Championing Efficiency Vermont’s strategy to advance Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion (DEI) in Vermont’s energy efficiency programs.
• Administering the Indoor Air Quality Grant Program created by the Vermont Legislature in 2020 in response to the COVID-19 Pandemic.
• Launching Efficiency Vermont’s electric vehicle programs in support of Act 151, the 2021 legislative act that allows Efficiency Vermont to introduce greenhouse gas emissions reduction programs for heating and transportation.

In addition to serving as VEIC CEO, Rebecca Foster will serve as interim Managing Director of Efficiency Vermont following Weston’s departure. Foster has over two decades of experience in clean energy and, as the immediate past Managing Director of Efficiency Vermont, is uniquely qualified to take on this role.
