Volunteers Needed for Town Community Power Committee
The Board of Selectmen has established a Community Power Committee that will explore and make recommendations on a Community Power program for Swanzey. We are currently seeking 3 additional volunteers to serve on the committee. This is expected to be a one-year commitment and the group will meet monthly beginning in April 2021. The goal is for the committee to draft a Community Power plan that could be considered by voters at Town Meeting in March 2022.
Community Power is a program that allows a municipality to pool the town’s total energy demand and make a bulk purchase of electricity for residents and businesses. Community Power would help Swanzey by increasing local control over where our energy comes from and potentially reducing electricity rates. If you have any questions or are interested in volunteering, please contact Matthew Bachler, Director of Planning & Economic Development, at 603-352-7411, ext. 108 or email@example.com.
