Mission Statement

The Hyde Park Energy Committee was commissioned in 2013 as a result of the Town & Village of Hyde Park, Vermont:

Comprehensive Development Plan, 2012 – 2017. The mission of the HPEC is to provide Hyde Park Village and

Town residents, businesses and Town government with information to promote broader energy efficiency and

conservation, and advise the Selectboard and Village Trustees on municipal energy decisions. The HPEC will be a conduit to

opportunities for all Village and Town members to save money, reduce fossil fuel dependency and advance goals

around energy-related issues.

 Goals include:

A) Save financial and natural resources by encouraging the conservation and efficient use of energy in the Town and Village

B) Increase public awareness of energy issues and build public support for energy efficiency and sustainable energy policies

C) Engage and educate residents, businesses and Town government around issues of energy incentives, renewable energy options, and statewide energy programs

E) Coordinate existing energy resources in the community and cooperating with the Planning Commission and with those federal, state and regional agencies of government

which are responsible for energy matters i.e., Efficiency Vermont 

F) Study and evaluate alternate sources of energy with a view toward the more efficient and economical utilization of existing and potential energy resources.
