Red Lodge is a small mountain town defined by values of community and environmental quality. Because of this, The City of Red Lodge has long been committed to environmental protection and sustainability. In order to achieve these goals, the City employs an Energy Corps AmeriCorps member to coordinate energy and 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. It 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 Energy Corps member serves as the Sustainability Coordinator for the City and works 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 save the City money in the long term, reduce carbon emissions, and promote tourism.
