November 2009

In the November 1, 2009 Sunday edition of the Burlington Free Press VNRC’s Energy Program Co-Director Johanna Miller penned an ‘I Believe’ piece that offers a perspective on the power of people to affect change. Miller points to the growing number of town energy committees – 90 at the time of publishing – as a powerful example of what’s possible when people lead.

While, as Miller notes, there are many good efforts underway, there is far, far more to do to meet the state’s energy needs and do our part to address climate change. Join VNRC and stay tuned into key opportunities to turn your passion into action on this and other critical issues. Or, join or start an energy committee in your hometown!
