Meeting Recap

       Greetings Rotarians!  Today’s speaker was Charlie Carpenter from Efficiency Vermont.  Charlie discussed the manner in which his organization assists both commercial and residential property owners in maximizing the energy efficiency of their homes and buildings.  Through the use of innovative technologies and energy credits that are available through a variety of programs, individuals and businesses can save thousands of dollars each year in energy costs.  Charlie used the new Essex Police Department as an example of a building that has implemented energy saving measures.  The long-term benefits of implementing these measures will save the community thousands of dollars each year.  For more information about this organization and the cost-saving benefits it offers, please visit its website at
