help Vermonters save energy in their homes and businesses.
Learn about the fundamentals of how buildings lose energy,
do-it-yourself opportunities for saving energy, no-cost
measures for reducing energy use, and health and safety
concerns related to
reducing air infiltration, among other topics. Particpants
will receive contact information for energy audit services,
lending institutions thatoffer low-interest loans for energy

The Londonderry Energy Committee
will be at the West River Farmers'
Market once a month this
summer promoting our "Save-a-Watt
Challenge"! We will have a table full of information
on how to make your home more energy efficient, incentive
programs for residential-scale renewable energy, and ways
to conserve energy. A representative from Efficiency Vermont,
the state's energy efficiency utility, will be present to
answer questions and sell Earthmate compact fluorescent bulbs
(these CFLs contain the least amount of mercury) for only
a dollar. We'll be there July 12th,
August 9th, and September 13th so please stop by and see us!
group photo was taken to "kick-off" the
CFL sales campaign. The goal is to sell 18,000 bulbs by the end
of the year. The photo shows membersof the Londonderry and
Peru Energy Committees along with Jim Twitchell and Phil Bickel.
April 19th CFL sales event at the Mountain
Rob is riding the "energy bike" and
Phil Bickel of Efficiency Vermont is standing in front of the
table. The bike was connected to two regular incandescent bulbs
and two CFL bulbs. When pedaling the bike, one could experience
the difference in the amount of energy it takes to light a
regular bulb compared to a CFL. Lighting the CFL was easy,
but lighting the incandescent bulb made you sweat.
