Energy Planning

The BCRC has prepared a comprehensive regional energy plan that provides direction to all of the commissionís program areas. The BCRC has worked on energy conservation initiatives with local energy committees, Efficiency Vermont, and business organizations. Support for renewable energy initiatives, participation in Section 248 reviews before the Public Service Board, and assistance to towns and organizations attempting to develop local food and local economy initiatives are undertakings that fall under the commissionís energy work program.
