In Vermont, the towns of Marshfield and Plainfield are reporting the launch of RAMP -- Revitalizing All Marshfield and Plainfield -- a new building energy task force as part of a year-long push to build a robust economy in the face of climate change, cut carbon emissions and cut energy consumption and costs.

Following the communities of Pownal, Randolph, Middlebury, and Swanton, RAMP is the fifth community participant in the Climate Economy Model Communities Program at the not-for-profit Montpelier-based Vermont Council on Rural Development (VCRD), which works to connect rural economic development to climate change responses.

The RAMP campaign encourages commercial building and homeowners to install solar panels, convert from fossil fuels to renewable electricity, weatherize their buildings and otherwise save money while saving energy and reducing emissions.
