Marlboro's renewable resurgence: Town committee focused on energy use continues to grow


MARLBORO -- The Marlboro Energy Committee is growing and expanding the scope of its work. Energized by the town's recent participation in the Vermont Council on Rural Development's Community Visit Program, more residents have recently joined the committee, and the first steps toward new wind, hydro-electric and solar projects are under way.

Tom Simon, chairman of the energy committee, said their are multiple ongoing efforts that focus on facilitating both individual and community-based projects.

"One of the things we've been working on is having a gallery of homes that already have some sort of renewable energy system installed," said Simon.

The online display of local homes with systems like solar panels and wind installations will include basic information about the cost and size of the installations, how they are performing, what their production levels are.
