Energy and Environmental Advisory Committee

EEAC Background

The Penfield Town Board passed a resolution to create the Penfield Energy and Environment Advisory Committee on January 6, 2010. The group held its first meeting February 2010; since then it has continued to meet the fourth Wednesday of every month.

The purpose of the advisory committee is to build on the work the town has done to lower its energy consumption and costs to taxpayers, and to promote responsible stewardship of the environment by the Town and its residents. Areas of focus include public education and awareness, environmental stewardship, reduced energy consumption, use of natural landscapes and gardens, and recycling.

The committee consists of residents who have interest and expertise in these areas, and appropriate town staff. Current resident members are:

Cynette Cavaliere (Sr. Environmental Project Engineer GMCH)
Bob Kanauer (Solar PV Design Engineer/Consultant and Planning Board member)
Matt Piston, Esq., (Conservation Board member/liaison)

Member terms are for one year. Town staff members supplement and support the advisory group.

"This advisory committee will further the work of the Town to reduce its use of resources and help residents reduce their own energy consumption and expenses. Our motivated citizens and staff will focus on understanding behaviors, sharing knowledge, and creating opportunities so all of Penfield can benefit from better stewardship of natural resources," said Supervisor Tony LaFountain.

The Penfield Energy and Environment Advisory Committee will also leverage the town's work on energy audits, energy stimulus grant funding, and internal efforts to create a resource-savvy culture. The committee meets the fourth Wednesday of each month from 4:00 to 6:00 PM in the Town Hall auditorium. The public is welcome to attend.
