>Central Vermont Community Action Council (CVCAC), in partnership 
>with the State of Vermont and the Vermont Energy and Climate Action 
>Network (VECAN), will implement an intensive six-month public 
>education program to mobilize Vermonters on how to save energy in 
>their homes. Through a series of two-hour workshops around the 
>state, citizens will learn about the fundamentals of how buildings 
>lose energy and do-it-yourself opportunities for saving energy, 
>including behavioral changes and low-cost weatherization 
>measures.  We are inviting you to sign up today for a Home Energy 
>Savings Workshop in your community.
>
>This program will draw upon town energy committees and other 
>community groups to coordinate workshops within each participating 
>town. The goal of the program is to conduct home energy savings 
>workshops in 100 communities -- reaching 10,000 households. 
>Participating energy committees and civic groups will have primary 
>responsibility for organizing the workshop for interested residents, 
>distributing educational materials, working with local retailers to 
>provide discounted weatherization materials, and publicizing the 
>program in their communities.
>
>Workshops will be conducted by a select group of trained, certi ed 
>energy auditors delivering a prepared presentation/slide show. 
>Workshops are scheduled to begin in late-September.  Button-Up, 
>Vermont will provide educational and publicity materials and will 
>arrange for a trained energy auditor to come to your community at 
>no-cost.  In late September, we will organize a series of regional 
>brie ng sessions throughout the state to provide more information 
>about the program.  After hearing from you, we will follow-up with 
>you about the times and availability of the briefing sessions in 
>your area and how to participate in the program.
>
>If you are interested in having a Home Energy Saving Workshop in 
>your community, please contact Diana Peduzzi, Assistant Coordinator,
