Energy & Environment Committee

The “EEC” was formed as a volunteer steering committee for the Town of Colebrook by a vote at the March 2007 Town meeting.  The vote was brought to the agenda by Emily and Bruce Katz to promote the conservation of energy and preservation of the environment. The committee has met four times since May 2007, and now has regularly scheduled evening meetings on the second Tuesday of every month.  Approximately fourteen volunteers are currently involved and maintain contact via email, phone, and through the minutes of the meetings, which are going to be posted on the town website.  

Vision:  Making practical solutions that save money and the environment.

Mission:  To provide information for residents and businesses to become “greener” and save money.
