NorShaft Energy Committee

We are an advisory committee made up of residents of North Bennington and Shaftsbury, Vermont –  as well as other towns – that are interested in helping Vermont get to 90% renewable energy by 2050.

Our Mission

The mission of the NorShaft Energy / CDR Robert H. Eastman III Energy Committee, Serving North Bennington and Shaftsbury is to promote energy conservation, energy efficiency, and the use of energy resources among our neighbors, businesses and town municipal properties. 

We will serve as a source for information about available renewable and efficient energy methods and systems that are cost-effective affordable investments. Through our activities, we will strive to meet the challenges of climate change by our commitment to the energy goals for our region and state.

We meet online

We once met at the Depot in North Bennington, Vermont, but when the pandemic hit, we decided we still wanted to work towards our goals – but in a safe environment. So once a month we meet online on Zoom. We try to stay consistent with the 3rd Thursday of the month at 6:30 PM as much as we can. 

Everyone is welcome and doesn’t have to be a resident of North Bennington or Shaftsbury, Vermont. 

If you’d like a Zoom invite to join our meetings, please email us at NorShaftEnergy@gmail.com
