WRC Continues to Assist With Town Enhanced Energy Planning

The Windham Regional Commission is working with member towns to develop enhanced energy elements for town plans. These enhanced elements meet state standards therefore making the town plan eligible for Substantial Deference in Section 248 proceedings. So far, WRC has assisted nine towns in the development of these plans.

The planning process involves an in-depth review of the towns' energy consumption currently and how they're projected to transition to renewable sources by 2050. This includes planning for a substantial amount of efficiency and conservation as well as identifying where renewable energy generation is feasible and preferred. Two towns- Westminster and Londonderry- have completed the local adoption process and received a Determination of Energy Compliance from WRC.

The next round of technical assistance is ramping up with the WRC working with four more towns. The draft plans are due to be completed by the end of the calendar year.
