The Town of Erie has developed an Energy Action Plan to help institute a series of actions and activities that will lower energy use community wide and engage residents and businesses to take advantage of utility rebates that save resources. The plan consists of an energy vision, goals for energy savings, and specific and detailed strategies to achieve those goals.
Our Energy Vision
“The Town of Erie is an engaged community that creates awareness, builds partnerships, and invests in energy strategies that responsibly pursue conservation, renewable energy generation, innovation, equity, and economic prosperity for the benefit of present and future generations.”
Goals for energy savings have been identified for each focus area that combined will save Erie residents and businesses approximately 1.45 gigawatt-hours (GWh) of electricity and 83,300 therms of natural gas over the 18-month implementation period, offsetting the equivalent of 231 passenger cars in carbon equivalent emissions and saving the community an aggregate $137,300.
