Summary of Projects

SERG received a Grow grant in 2012 to help cover outreach, education and organizing time for the Home Energy Action Team (HEAT) project. The group will share resources developed and lessons learned from the Thetford program in a more directed, resource efficient outreach effort with several additional Upper Valley Energy Committees.

The Sustainable Energy Resource Group received a grant in 2009 to educate the Thetford Home Energy Assistance Team volunteers to install air sealing measures using the Thetford Center Community Center as their training site. They hired professional contractors and also oversaw volunteers as they assisted contractors to complete the project. The Sustainable Energy Resource Group created a model that could be replicated by other communities in NH and VT.
