The Dummerston Energy Committee, on which I serve in my home town, is conducting an energy survey.
Partly, we are conducting this survey to understand how our town uses energy — both in our homes and in our vehicles. We have a goal in Dummerston, articulated in our Town Plan, to reduce nonrenewable energy consumption 40% by 2030, and we’re trying to establish a baseline from which to measure our success in achieving that long-term target.
But we’re also conducting this survey for another reason that may be more important: to gauge how resilient our town is.
