Renewable Energy Committee

The Burlington Renewable Energy and Conservation Committee is made up of 7 to 9 appointed volunteers that are committed to furthering sustainability efforts in the City of Burlington. Meetings are held on the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 8:30 am in City Hall Council Chambers. Volunteers all have different backgrounds but work towards the same mission: promote energy conservation and the use of renewable energy sources throughout the city. 

Chapter 37 of City Code (PDF) establishes and outlines the role this committee plays in the City of Burlington.
