Scott Gardner Presents on Reducing Home Energy Costs September 14th

The event, part of Sustainable Williston’s Sustainable Energy Series at the Dorothy Alling Library, will explain the benefits of a home energy audit to assess your home’s current energy consumption and to find ways to improve your home’s energy efficiency through a whole-home approach.

  1. Have you also considered inviting Efficiency Vermont to this event? This presentation sounds great! But if Building Energy is also performing the work, it seems like a conflict of interest. It might be useful to have a third party resource there like Efficiency Vermont… I’ve called them in the past and had such a wonderful experience! They helped us replace our boiler when ours failed with a newer/better one! And helped us find financing options so that we could do it affordably.

    • Hi Bev,

      Thanks for your comment. Our feeling is that it’s all right to do workshops with local businesses like Building Energy if we have experience with them and feel confident that they offer important options to local residents. Efficiency Vermont, for example, doesn’t do energy audits themselves: they only direct Vermonters to businesses like Building Energy.

      We have had VEIC folks (VEIC is the parent organization that includes Efficiency Vermont) at some past events and look forward to doing a lot more with them!
