Investing in heating efficiency is one of the single most cost-effective ways Vermonters can reduce carbon emissions, save money, and help build the local economy. The heating efficiency bill, H.520, passed by the House recently doesn’t nearly get the job done. While the bill takes a number of small steps to help Vermonters use less energy to heat their homes and businesses, it doesn’t provide an additional dime in funding for heating efficiency programs. The Senate has the opportunity to improve the bill by adding the robust funding essential to meeting the state’s goal of weatherizing 80,000 homes by 2020.
With the first half of the 2013 legislative session in the books, our decision makers have yet to take action to promote clean, local heating sources in Vermont. Heating Beyond Oil: How We Get There will provide an overview of the importance of clean and affordable heating sources, the current legislative lay-of-the-land in regards to clean heat and most importantly, what YOU can do to make a difference in the coming weeks on this critical campaign.
What: A public forum hosted by VPIRG’s Clean Energy Advocate Ben Walsh on clean heating options and what YOU can do to get involved
