Great new resource on #netzero for homeowners and business.
 
Can Vermonters Afford (Not) to Go Net Zero? - Energy. Forward. An Efficiency Vermont Blog - We are very proud to have worked on this and very excited about what it might mean for the future of energy in Vermont. Follow the links at the end of the article to see the complete report. The goal of the study was to determine the financial feasibility of net zero in our state.

"We now have a roadmap for illustrating how net zero construction in Vermont can achieve net savings starting in the first year of operation. Considering factors like energy cost volatility, health costs, and other environmental costs, the future of net zero new construction has never been brighter in Vermont."

#NetZero #Sustainability #FeasibilityStudy

In 2014, Efficiency Vermont seized an opportunity to collaborate with fellow Vermonters, Bill Maclay and Maclay Architects; the authors of “The New Net Zero,” a book that charts the path for net zero construction, to help determine the financial feasibility of net zero in our state.

Interesting trend   #media
Native ads being as engaging as editorial content on The New York Times may seem like a content marketer's fever dream, but T Brand Studio is making pigs fly.

Interests & appropriate circles: #words/writing #sustainability #CSR #foodie #foodsystems #socialgood #smallbusiness #socialmarketing #cycling #Vermont

President/founder of Marketing Partners, where we harness the power of ideas and communications to help our clients close the gap between what is and what could be. Our blog, Change Conversations, provides ideas for making change happen.

Also blog at Wordbit Overflow and am on Twitter as @pheffernanvt. My shared items on Google Reader used to offer a snapshot of what's top of mind lately, but that's no longer possible. I'm testing Digg and Scoop.it as substitutes.

Off hours are spent on words, the outdoors, travel, cycling, and drinking tea, but rarely sleeping. Thanks for visiting.
