Green Energy Committee
The Green Energy Committee was formed out of the Citizens’ Energy Challenge Committee by the Richmond Town Council on September 4, 2018. The Committee is made up of a group of unpaid volunteers who, as part of the Town, remain committed to sustainable and renewable energy and the attendant benefits and cost savings now that the Energy Challenge goal has been exceeded.
DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES:
The committee shall:
1. Serve as public advocates for energy conservation and efficiency.
2. Assist with publicity and other public outreach for associated programs, and provide educational material and other assistance as pertinent.
3. Continue to advise the Town Council and the Town Administrator on short-term and long-term strategies to promote energy efficiency, save on energy costs, and reduce the environmental impacts of energy usage by the Town and by households and businesses in Richmond.
The committee shall terminate on December 31, 2020 unless extended by further action of the Town Council.
The committee shall consist of five Richmond residents appointed by the Town Council from among volunteers, and one Town employee. Members shall serve for the life of the committee. If a vacancy occurs in the membership, the Town Council shall appoint another volunteer to serve the remainder of the term.
