Vermont Governor Phil Scott recognizes National Clean Energy Week


Vermont Governor Phil Scott has issued a state proclamation recognizing September 23-27, 2019 as Clean Energy Week in his home state.

In the proclamation, Gov. Scott notes that Vermont’s “growing energy economy has created jobs while reducing consumer demand for high-cost, high-carbon “peak energy” by creating and supporting clean, renewable energy sources and increasing energy efficiency.”

Vermont is now one of 16 states in the country to formally recognize National Clean Energy Week 2019. In 2018, a total of 29 governors, both Republican and Democratic, issued state proclamations declaring September 24-28, 2018 as National Clean Energy Week.
