Truly Green & Just Electricity for VT: What it Looks Like & How You Can Help
Many of Vermont's proposed climate solutions involve transitioning to electric methods of heating and transportation - dramatically increasing our electricity use. This is an important piece of the puzzle, but electrifying can only be a solution if the electricity sources are truly clean, renewable, and just. Despite Vermont's “green” reputation, we import much of our energy from either out of state fossil fuels under the guise of renewables, old hydro-electric facilities in Quebec, and a nuclear plant in New Hampshire. Our electricity sources are not low emissions enough and we’re exporting the risks and harms of our energy needs to communities outside Vermont. We can and must do better.
Join us for a short and sweet online event to learn where VT's electricity actually comes from, why changes to current law and energy policies in VT are needed to be truly green and just, how this affects ratepayers, and how we can make sure— with your help!— that critical improvements are made this legislative session. Participants will come away with clear action steps.
