Panton partnership to produce energy savings
PANTON — Green Mountain Power and Efficiency Vermont officials will come to Panton on Tuesday morning to announce a community-wide energy transformation project there intended to reduce energy costs for homeowners and businesses, lower their fossil fuel use, and improve their comfort.
According to a GMP press release, the effort “will put Panton at the forefront of energy innovation in Vermont as the first town to know its total energy use, cost and carbon, giving it the ability to track energy and carbon-saving improvements.”
Panton and GMP have already agreed to partner to make energy improvements to Panton’s Town Hall and garage, and a large GMP solar array in Panton will include a battery backup system to supply power to town buildings in the case of a larger grid failure.
Planning to attend a Tuesday, Aug. 23, event at 11 a.m. at Panton Town Hall are GMP CEO and President Mary Powell, Vermont Energy Efficiency Corp. Executive Director Scott Johnstone, Efficiency Vermont Director Liz Gamache and Panton officials, including selectboard member Howard Hall.
The town is also planning a community barbecue to celebrate Panton and the partnership. It will take place at the Mueller property at 2838 Jersey St. from 5 to 6:30 p.m.
