Workshops & Consumer Education
Learn about services, solutions and energy-efficient technologies that help you make informed decisions about the best ways to save.
We enjoy meeting fellow Vermonters face to face, talking about energy efficiency, and helping you to achieve your goals. You’ll find us speaking and exhibiting at a range of events across the state—from consumer expos to business trade shows and our own workshops and retail events. We also present to employees of Vermont-based companies, chambers of commerce, community organizations, and more.
- Put a face to a name: come meet us in person, ask us anything about energy
- Access unbiased, third-party advice on energy-efficient products and technologies
- Get to know others in your community who are interested in energy efficiency—and learn how to take action
We offer free workshops for community groups and businesses designed to help Vermonters make energy improvements. Each workshop addresses actions you can take in your home or business to save money and energy, along with available technical and financial resources to help you take the next step. We provide a presenter, guidance on how to effectively organize a workshop, and educational and public outreach materials. Community groups and businesses take primary responsibility for getting the word out and securing the venue.
