In 2015, the City invested in the EnergyCorps AmeriCorps program to assist the City with sustainability related projects. The Energy Corps AmeriCorps project is an initiative of the National Center for Appropriate Technology (NCAT) in cooperation with The Corporation for National and Community Service. Energy Corps was created to address unmet community energy needs by promoting sustainable energy consumption and education, fostering community sustainability and helping to mitigate the effects of global climate change.

The City hired a Sustainability Coordinator to complete energy efficiency, renewable energy, and waste management projects. Energy Corps has become a valuable asset to the community, pursuing energy-related projects that will save the City money in the long term, reduce carbon emissions, and promote tourism. Please see the attached documents below to see the progress Energy Corps has made.
