Solarize Upper Valley
In 2014 and 2015, Vital Communities partnered with 24 Upper Valley towns to launch 11 Solarize campaigns across the Upper Valley. Residents in participating towns can receive special solar discounts. Visit our Solarize Upper Valley website for resources to help you go solar, whether or not you live in a Solarize community. Together, we’ve helped over 300 homes switch to solar. Stay tuned as we work toward our goal of doubling the number of solar homes in the Upper Valley.

Sustainable Energy Resource Group (SERG)
The Upper Valley’s expert on residential energy efficiency, conservation, and renewable energy is Sustainable Energy Resource Group (SERG). Vital Communities and SERG partner on a number of projects to address energy use throughout the region. SERG’s focus is on town energy committees and residential home weatherization. Visit SERG’s website for more information.

Paige Heverly joined Vital Communities in 2017 as the Energy and Transportation Project Coordinator. Hailing from the suburbs of Philadelphia, she moved to Vermont in 2011 and earned a joint BA in Renewable Energy and Ecological Design and Environmental Studies from Green Mountain College. After completing her Master of Energy Regulation and Law from Vermont Law School, Paige worked in energy efficiency consulting in Portland, Oregon. Her love of local food systems, the White River, and the Green Mountains brought her back to the Upper Valley to work on regional issues with localized solutions. Paige is passionate about closing ecological loops and treating waste as food. In her free time, she enjoys baking homemade English muffins, weeding her garden, and writing letters to her pen pals.
