  Energy Intensity: Site and Source

• Site = energy consumed by a building,
  measured by electric and gas meters,
  divided by square footage.


• Source = fuels consumed and lost in energy
  generation, storage, transmission, and
  distribution.

         What we spend
as a town on our energy operating
              costs
• Buildings:           $ Enter No#
• Vehicle Fleet:       $ Enter No#
• Streetlights:        $ Enter No#


           TOTAL: $Enter No#
If we reduced what we spent on
   municipal energy by 30% on
other items, we could afford to…
  Provide Medicaid to 5 residents in our town
  Hire a part time teacher for our school
  Pay for ½ a new school
  Feed 4 families for a year
  Provide housing for one family for a year
  Plant 144,000 trees
  Brew 1,497 gallons of homemade beer
     TOWN Recommendations
• Further fuel costs analysis.
• Invest in building upgrades, then in vehicle fleet.
• Depot Station best opportunity for energy
  savings.
• Town Hall (largest energy user) second
  opportunity for energy savings.
• Tour Depot Station, Town Hall, Library,
  Recycling/ Transfer Station with certified
  buildings auditor.
• LED streetlights and streetlight use conservation.
     Funding Energy Savings
• Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative

• Federal Stimulus for Energy Reduction

• Municipal Planning/Budgeting

• Stay Tuned
    General Guidance on Municipal
           Energy Savings
•   Review of town policies for inconsistencies
    with goal to reduce energy use.
•   Behavioral change program.
•   Green product purchasing policy.
•   Vehicle fuel conservation options: analysis of
    routes, usage and fuel type; anti-idling policy.
•   Alternative energy systems and payback:
    Combined Heat and Power unit, biomass
    heating system or geothermal heat pump.
•   Recycling and composting.
                Next Steps
• Support/reinforce Local Energy Committee
• Present Information to All Decision-Makers and
  Community Groups
• Prioritize Municipal Recommendations and create
  Action Plan
• Integrate Recommendations into Existing Plans,
