Winooski Saves Energy
Through 2023, Efficiency Vermont and VGS are partnering with Winooski’s local agencies and organizations to bring special energy-saving offers, services, and events to help the community save energy and live, work, and play more comfortably.
Vermont has one of the highest home ownership racial gaps in the country. That means the majority of BIPOC Vermonters are renters. Winooski is the most diverse community in the state, with 31 languages spoken in schools. It is a designated refugee resettlement community and 60% of Winooski’s housing stock is rented.
We don’t have all of the answers, but we believe that the best way to bring equity to energy efficiency programs is through a community-based approach.There are many local partners we hope to collaborate with, to spread the word and connect with community members.
If you have an energy efficiency question or idea for your home, rental property, or business, contact us! We are here to serve your energy needs.
