MEETING OF SULLIVAN CITIZENS INTERESTED IN ENERGY ISSUES
February 25, 2009

Sarah Harpster of Cool Monadnock met with Jeff Brooks, Karen Haynes, Roger and Ann Sweet, and Bob Switzer in the town hall.  Sarah had fed data about electricity and fuel use in 2005 into an EPA software program to assess energy consumption by the four town buildings and by the 12 town vehicles to see how our consumption compares with a state average and with another small town.  Her analysis is tentative and based on a number of assumptions.
