BENNINGTON, Vermont — The Environmental Protection Agency is applauding efforts by students and staff at Vermont's Bennington College to save energy in the local community.
The EPA has released a short video that praises the voluntary efforts by Bennington College to help the local community combat climate issues by analyzing energy use of municipal streetlights and working with the local power utility to increase efficiency and save money.
In 2012, the EPA's New England office began an informal partnership with Bennington College to work with students in a class called "Solving the Impossible."
In the class led by Professor Susan Sgorbati students worked with officials in North Bennington, who in turn identified a program publicized by Efficiency Vermont and Green Mountain Power to convert municipal street lights to more energy efficient LED lighting.
