About the Energy Advisory Committee


The Energy Advisory Committee is a seven member volunteer committee.  Members of the Committee are appointed by the Town Council to three-year terms.

The purpose of the Energy Advisory Committee (EAC) is to:  advise the Town Council on issues related to energy conservation and efficiency in municipal operations; reduce the town's spending on electricity, fuel, and heating while decreasing overall greenhouse gas emissions; and make Windham residents aware of opportunities to increase residential energy efficiency through public education efforts.
  
  
Meetings

Energy Committee meetings are held on the first Monday of each month, unless the Monday is a holiday recognized by the Town of Windham, in which case there will be no meeting.

The Energy Committee meets at the Windham Town Hall, in Conference Room 1.  Meetings begin at 6:30 pm.

The Energy Plan
The Windham Energy Plan consists of two parts.  First, the Energy Plan itself, which includes a summary of the town's energy usage with goals, priorities, and recommendations.  Second, the energy inventory, which is a detailed accounting of the town's energy use and expenditures for 2009.  This data is the benchmark from which the town will measure progress toward implementing the energy plan.

Municipal Building Energy Audits

The Energy Advisory Committee is coordinating the work required for energy audits of town buildings.  These "decision grade" audits will allow town officials to make decisions on energy improvements to facilities that will have the best payback and greatest impacts on electricity and fuel use.
