The Montpelier Energy Advisory Committee (MEAC) is seeking new members. The committee was founded in 2010 to act in an advisory capacity to the City Council on energy issues. MEAC identifies and nurtures energy-saving projects and opportunities; informs and engages city residents on energy issues; and partners with other statewide groups to foster projects that reduce Montpelier’s energy use or help to meet its energy needs from renewables. Montpelier is committed to becoming the first capital city to eliminate fossil fuel use by converting to 100% renewable energy. By 2030, 100% of the energy used for municipal government operations (thermal, electrical, and transportation) will be renewable or offset. By 2050, fossil fuel use will be eliminated entirely and 100% of energy needs (municipal, residential, and commercial) will be met renewably.
MEAC meets in City Hall's Memorial Room on the third Tuesday of every month at 7:00 PM.
