Energy Efficiency and Development
Sound regional and local planning can play a positive and effective role in guiding energy decisions. By promoting appropriate land use patterns, participating in energy development decisions, facilitating alternative transportation options, and encouraging energy conservation strategies, Vermont communities can lead the Nation toward a position of sustainable energy use which will not only maintain a healthy environment, but will also build a foundation for economic health and stability.
The Energy Element of Plan Central Vermont will be designed to assist in the decision making processes of state and local government, and to enhance the economic and environmental health of the Region.
