Return of Ripton energy efficiency

Ripton's energy efficiency initiative continues:
Round 2 of the Efficiency Vermont's Vermont Community Energy Mobilization Project will start in February. Ripton will be a player once again. Ripton residents who missed out on home energy visits in 2009 can take advantage of the opportunity by contacting Warren at 388-4082 or kinglet at together dot net to schedule a visit. Visits are free. They take up to two hours and involve installing free compact fluorescent bulbs and other energy saving equipment, conducting a walk-through energy assessment, and providing information about the advantages of a comprehensive energy retrofit.

If you would like to help conduct home visits you'll need to attend the Efficiency Vermont training on Saturday, January 23rd, from 9 to noon at Middlebury's Ilsley Library downstairs meeting room.

You'll get a free breakfast if you come at 8:30.
