Plans for 2021

In 2021, CEAC will continue to pursue our dual goals of (1) reducing greenhouse gas in Addison County through on-the-ground projects and (2) building CEAC’s organizational capacity to grow and sustain this important work.   

Our work will continue to:

  • Expand our public EV Charger program 
  • Support renewable-energy projects
  • Work with local businesses to implement low-emission and net-zero-emission opportunities
  • Partner with other county organizations to pursue significant grant opportunities.

CEAC will also build upon our past successes:

  • Co-creating the new “LiveGreenVT: Champlain Valley Climate and Renewable Energy Guide” (LiveGreenVT.org)
  • Compiling an extensive, unique baseline study of county greenhouse-gas emission sources and volumes
  • Producing a twice-monthly e-newsletter with over 200 subscribers
  • Forming an active Community Advisory Board of over 25 local leaders
  • Public advocacy for Middlebury College’s 30-acre solar energy field.

CEAC will develop relationships with partners and funders to co-create a thriving organization ready to meet challenges of the next decade. We will:

  • Increase our staffing and volunteer capacity
  • Create more public education activities around climate in Addison County
  • Continue research and education projects aimed at achieving our goals
  • Expand projects with our education, business and agricultural communities
  • Support programs to nurture healthy downtowns and working lands
  • Expand our Champlain Valley Climate and Renewable Energy Guide.
