2 North Country Energy Needs Transportation and Heat dominate businesses and homeowners budgets – If fuel oil … homeowner heating is in the range of $2,000 to $6,000+ a year. Warehouses can be $10,000+ a month – Residential Cars/trucks are in a similar range …. business follow suit Conservation looked upon as a key reducer to overall costs ….. IP in Ticonderoga has shown otherwise 2013 NCEC – North Country Symposium

3 What Is Happening Local/Individual Strategies have been implemented … i.e. – Homeowners installing wood heat – Wood Chip Boilers – 75% in energy cost savings vs fuel oil – Solar PV with 7 to 10 year payouts – Natural Gas expansion where available – Some buildings/home have energy audits – Some new construction is LEED certified What is being worked on / considered … i.e. – Town wide heating using wood chips – Expanding wood chip boilers to large buildings – Community Based Virtual Net Metering – Legislative Change Common Theme – change energy source to reduce energy costs ….. Pace of change is slow …… WHY? 2013 NCEC – North Country Symposium
