Tim Herbst: Trumbull First to Take Clean Energy Pledge
Trumbull has pledged to reduce its municipal building energy consumption by 20 percent by 2018.
The reduction will be gradual:
- FY (Fiscal Year) 2012-13: 5 percent
- FY 2013-14: 8 percent
- FY 2014-15: 11 percent
- FY 2015-16: 14 percent
- FY 2016-17: 17 percent
- FY 2017-18: 20 percent
The town will create its own Municipal Action Plan "to determine its path in reducing its energy consumption."
While there is no penalty for failing to meet the goals, the town will not be eligible for Bright Ideas Grants from the Connecticut Energy Efficiency Fund and Companies under the Clean Energy Communities program.
"The town will also seek to make a voluntary purchase of at least 20 percent of the electricity for municipal facilities from clean, renewable energy sources by annual CEC program requirements," the release states.
The town will be eligible for grants if it meets all the benchmarks.
