Energy Steering Committee

5 Regular / 2 Alternate Member Board

 Regular Meetings are held at 7:00PM at the York Public Library on the 3rd Thursday of each month.

A Note from the Chair...Minimize

In 2009, the Board of Selectmen established what came to be called the York Energy Steering Committee (ESC). The primary mission of this committee is to analyze and recommend energy conservations and alternative energy option for the Town of York. The ultimate goal is to shrink the carbon footprint of the Town while at the same time saving taxpayer money by reducing energy consumption.

Using funds approved in recent years by York voters, the ESC has made significant improvements to five existing municipal buildings and will continue to look for opportunities to reduce Town energy use of all kinds. Whenever possible, the Energy Steering Committee will work with municipal departments, the school system, and appointed building committees to advise them of strategies for "building in" energy efficiency for all major renovations and new construction projects. Most of these strategies are based on principles of sound design and do not necessarily require spending more money during construction. However, if an additional investment can be shown to lead to a more energy efficient and more economical operation over the long run, the ESC may recommend expenditure of designated energy funds.

The Energy Steering Committee should not be confused with the York Energy Efficiency Committee (a.k.a. York Goes Green), which a separate, non-governmental citizen group. The ESC generally meets monthly in session which are open to the public. Each expenditure of funds recommended by the ESC must first be approved by a vote of the Board of Selectmen.   - Wayne Boardman, Energy Steering Committee Chair


Seacoast Energy Initiative

SEI is a consortium of six towns in Southern York County that successfully won a $500,000 grant from Efficiency Maine to help local residents improve the energy efficiency of their homes, reduce their dependence on imported home heating oil and support local jobs and small businesses recover from the economic recession by providing education and a revolving loan fund. By financing the improvements, homeowners can match the cost of making improvements with the benefits from those energy savings. $400,000 of the grant is reserved for funding the revolving loan program.
