Energy Committee

ENERGY COMMITTEE

The Rye Energy Committee was formed in the summer of 2007 as an ad hoc committee renewable annually by the Board of Selectmen. Voters approved a Warrant Article at Town Meeting that year that, among other things, called for the Town to appoint a voluntary committee to recommend local steps to save energy and reduce emissions. The goals of the Committee are to promote energy conservation and efficiency, and to explore ways to reduce  carbon emissions among the town’s residents, businesses, and in municipal affairs.

The Committee consists of seven members who are appointed by the Board of Selectmen for unlimited terms. The current members are, Howard Kalet, Tom Pfau and Danna Truslow. Advisory members, including scientists, educators, representatives of business and civic organizations, are invited to join the Committee on an as-needed basis. Advisory members can participate in all meetings but do not have a vote. The Committee will include working subcommittees, as needed, each of which will focus on residential, business, or municipal energy issues.

The Energy Committee meets on the first Tuesday of each month at 6:30- 8:00 PM in the Rye Public Library. All meetings are posted at the Town Offices and on the Town website at least 24 hours prior to the meeting.

The meetings are open to the public, and the public is welcome to provide

 

input.
