Connecting & Activating Vermont Communities

Supporting Low-Income Vermonters in Energy Efficiency and Weatherization

In the second installment of the VECAN 2022 Workshop Series, Supporting Low-Income Vermonters in Energy Efficiency and Weatherization, experts from Efficiency Vermont presented the different programs and resources available to address energy burdens for low-income Vermonters.

You can access the presentation slides here and a copy of the chat here.

Efficiency Vermont defined and contextualized what energy burden means and how it impacts Vermonters, the role they serve in that capacity, and shared resources to help local energy committees get the word out and take action in their communities. 

One of these resources is Efficiency Vermont’s Community Managers, who partner directly with Energy Committees across the state to help them design and execute energy efficiency campaigns. For that work, they have designated a point person for each county:

  • Brad Long, blong@veic.org, serves Washington, Addison, Rutland, and Lamoille counties
  • Becca White, bwhite@veic.org, serves Bennington, Windham, Windsor, and Orange counties 
  • Michelle McCutcheon-Schour, ​​mmschour@veic.org, serves Chittenden, Franklin, Grand Isle, Orleans, Caledonia, and Essex counties 

If you are planning to do outreach in your communities around low-income energy efficiency and weatherization programs, please reach out to your corresponding Community Manager so they can help guide you through the process.
