The Town of Bennington is moving forward on a Community Power plan. Community Power is a program approved by the State Legislature that allows towns to buy power at rates that are lower than utilities’ rates. The Town thus becomes the power supplier for residents and businesses. The purpose of this program is to lower energy costs in the town of Bennington. The plan will need Town Meeting approval. Once it is approved, we will be able to bring the energy to all residents and businesses that choose to participate, at a competitive price. We ask that you complete this survey, so we know what residents are most interested in. Members of the Community Power Committee will be at the Transfer Station handing out the survey, or you can obtain them at the Town Office and at local businesses. You can also take the survey on line by scanning the QR code on the attached flyer or by going to surveymonkey.com/r/BenningtonCP. We appreciate your help with this becoming a successful program for all Bennington residents and businesses.
