Purpose: The Town of Westmoreland Alternative Energy Advisory Committee will support the Town Boards and Committees including but not limited to the Board of Selectmen, Conservation Commission and Planning Board. They will research solar, wind, hydro, geothermal energy and other potential alternatives. The committee is encouraged to consider each alternative separately with solar recommended as the first consideration. They should garner viewpoints from town residents across the spectrum through a variety of methods to determine the level of support for each alternative energy application.
Goals: The Alternative Energy Advisory Committee will lay out the pros and cons of each alternative energy and indicate any need for parameters or restrictions in utilizing that energy source in both residential and commercial applications.
