Sustainable Sullivan

The goal of the Sustainable Sullivan Project is to reduce the carbon footprint of our county and stimulate job creation in energy efficiency and renewable energy.

A series of easy to use tools has been developed that are now available to use in municipal, commercial, civic and residential projects for energy savings and operational cost reductions.  SASD will train volunteers in using calculators and other tools to assess opportunities for solar electric, solar thermal, geo thermal, wind, energy efficiency, and transportation savings as well as provide technical support in every aspect of funding.

Call Carol Roig, Sustainable Sullivan Program Director at 807-0578 to discuss and schedule project development and training sessions.  SASD is also interested in hearing from citizens and businesses who have initiated energy efficiency and renewable energy projects.  This information is very important for the county-wide plan for climate change action and sustainable economic development.
