181 Solar Contracts & Solarize Round Three

Solarize Upper Valley Round Two wrapped up on January 31 with 181 homeowners signing contracts to go solar this year – a total of 1,086 kilowatts of new renewable power in the region! What’s more, every community at least doubled its number of solar homes.

(NOTE: when this was posted on February 4, there were 178 homes going solar – since then we’ve added three more!)

Congratulations and thanks to the dedicated volunteers and partner installers who made the program a success.

Solarize Upper Valley Round Three launches publicly in June. We’ll host an Info Session for Communities from 5:30 to 7 pm on Thursday, February 19, at the Montshire Museum of Science in Norwich, Vermont. Check our calendar or email to learn more.

8th Annual Upper Valley Energy Committee Roundtable

Our annual Roundtable is one of the highlights of my year. Free dinner, good friends, and people from all corners of our region who care about local energy. Is there anything better?

This year’s annual Upper Valley Energy Committee Roundtable will take place Tuesday, April 28, 5 to 8 pm in the Porter Community Room at the Montshire Museum in Norwich, Vermont. The change of location this year is due to the growing interest in and attendance at this great event.

The Roundtable is intended to assist existing Upper Valley energy committees in carrying out their work by sharing information and providing networking opportunities, and to help those interested in forming new energy committees. The Roundtable is free, and a light buffet dinner will be provided. We’ll be posting a full agenda and accepting RSVPs soon, so stay tuned!

You can find lots of great resources from past Roundtable events online:
