Climate Town Hall with Senator Sanders

VNRC and our partners at the Vermont Energy and Climate Action Network (VECAN) were privileged to be joined by Senator Sanders and a panel of municipal energy committee leaders on August 25, to discuss local efforts to address the climate crisis and hear about potential federal investments to support this work in Vermont and beyond.

The event featured a panel discussion and Q&A with members of Vermont Town Energy Committees on the federal climate investments in the $3.5 trillion reconciliation bill working its way through Congress.

As the Senator noted, we have a historic opportunity to help address the climate crisis through securing the passage of this critical legislation that would provide much needed support to local energy transformation efforts. If we all do what we can in the coming weeks to support these efforts, we can meet the moment, and make major progress toward transforming our energy system away from fossil fuels and toward sustainable energy.
