Energy Committee

At their December 15, 2022 meeting, the Energy Committee voted 3-0 to recommend that the Select Board dissolve the Energy Committee due to lack of recruits and capacity.  At their December 20, 2022 meeting, the Select Board accepted the Energy Committee’s recommendation to dissolve the committee, and voted 4-0 in favor of doing so. 

Consequently, the Town of Bolton no longer has an active Energy Committee, but will continue to use this page to provide energy information and resources. 

Should there be community interest in re-instating the Energy Committee, community members can contact the Town Office to request an appointment with the Select Board to start that process.

The former charge of the Energy Committee was to support a range of activities to decrease energy consumption in Town, promote energy efficiency, and support the development of renewable energy in the Town of Bolton. including a focus on activities that lower energy bills for the Town, residents, and businesses of Bolton, and create jobs in Vermont.
