Southern Vermont Citizens for Environmental Conservation and Sustainable Energy

Mission Statement

To monitor, support and promote local and regional clean renewable energy generation facilities and conservation programs, including appropriate combined heat and power systems, that are consistent with good land use, respect for our water and forest resources on a life cycle basis and consistent with least cost integrated planning (or consistent with present value life cycle economic costs), are efficient, environmentally sustainable and meet clean air and water quality standards.

To involve local residents in their future energy uses by educating them and participating as an organization at local, regional and state meetings and hearings to support and defend appropriate—or, if inappropriate, oppose—energy efficiency programs and generation plants.

To hire consultants and experts and develop plans and protocols for carrying out these purposes.
