As winter approaches, Vermonters encouraged to save energy, stay comfortable, and lower bills
Oct. 1, 2018 – Williston, VT – With thermometers beginning to drop and recent news that carbon emissions in Vermont have increased, spokespeople from participating Vermont organizations will join Congressman Peter Welch at a Williston home this Friday to urge Vermonters to get their homes ready for winter.
Media are encouraged to attend the Button Up Vermont event to bring information to their readers, viewers, and listeners that will help them save money, be more comfortable and reduce carbon emissions from heating fuels this winter. Photo ops and interviews available.
What: Button Up Vermont press conference.
Who: Congressman Peter Welch and representatives from Button Up Vermont partner organizations.
Where: 348 Southfield Drive, Williston Vermont (Home of Myra Boenke, who recently completed a comprehensive home energy retrofit with Williston-based Building Energy, a building and energy services company).
When: Friday, Oct. 5, 1:30 p.m.
Why: To encourage Vermonters to get ready for winter by “buttoning up” their homes. Vermont has aggressive goals to reduce the amount of energy we use – including getting 80,000 Vermont homes weatherized by 2020. But we’re behind. Button Up Vermont is a statewide effort to cut energy needed for heating and cooling.
Parking: Please drive past 348 Southfield Drive before parking on either side of the street.
