Supporting local energy committees in their efforts to save energy costs

How and Why Municipal Governments Support Local Energy Committees

Supporting Local Energy Committees in their Efforts to Save Energy Costs


Local energy committee s service

Local Energy Committee’s Service

  • Identify energy cost saving opportunities

  • Data collection and legwork that saves municipal staff time

  • Share latest information on tools for financing investments in energy saving measures


Benchmarking why

Benchmarking: Why?

  • Identify easiest opportunities to save money on energy budget

  • Measure progress and quantify savings

  • Communicate with public about successes in saving energy costs

  • Attract state and federal monies for energy saving improvements to infrastructure


Benchmarking how municipal government can help

Benchmarking: How Municipal Government Can Help

  • Direct municipal employees to facilitate energy use and cost data to Local Energy Committee

  • Help communicate energy cost saving efforts to the wider community


Benchmarking results

Benchmarking Results

Energy Use and Energy Cost comparisons between municipal sectors

More in-depth comparative data on municipal buildings, including energy intensity (energy use per square foot)

Analysis that identifies short-range/low cost energy saving opportunities and offers recommendations for larger investments

Follow-up information and support for municipality to undertake energy saving projects


What energy costs

Money

Rising price of fossil fuels

Capital leaves region

Access to supply can mean expensive conflict

Environment

Fossil fuel combustion creates carbon and other greenhouse gas imbalance

Leads to global warming

What Energy Costs?

Why act now

The cost of some fuels has almost doubled in just a few years.

Early action on energy efficiency saves fuel as costs continue to rise.

Money can stay in the local economy and support local development and independence.

The public is looking for leadership on energy issues.

Cool Monadnock is here to help.

Why Act Now

Supporting local energy committees in their efforts to save energy costs

If we spent what we spend on home heating oil on other items, we could afford to…

  • Provide Medicaid to 29,000 people

  • (or all of Keene + Peterborough)

  • Provide a university education to 360 students

  • Hire 2,000 full-time teachers for a year

  • Build 180,000 low-income Housing Units

  • Plant 9 billion trees

  • Brew 9 million gallons of homemade beer
