The Bennington Community Power Committee will meet the first Thursday of each month at 7:00pm
in the Town Hall Conference Room.
David McKenzie – Chairperson
Molly Flower Eppig – Secretary
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.
Bennington Community Power Committee.
The Town has assembled the Bennington Community Power Committee to develop a program to provide savings on electricity bills for Bennington residents. Community Power has been adopted by several towns in the Monadnock region and has the potential to provide considerable savings on the electric bills of residents who choose to participate. The Committee will have a plan in place to be voted on at the March 12, 2024 Town Meeting.
The next meeting is Wednesday, November 1 at 7:00 pm at the Town Hall.
The second meeting will present the same material as the first but may include suggestions from the first meeting. All Bennington residents are encouraged to attend either or both of these meetings.
