Intermunicipal Regional Energy Coordinator
June 1, 2020
The Two Rivers-Ottauquechee Regional Commission (TRORC) is seeking an energetic individual to serve as the Intermunicipal Regional Energy Coordinator (IREC) for a one-year contract position. This position is funded by seven communities in Vermont and has the potential to be extended. The IREC will be a TRORC contract position supervised by the TRORC Executive Director and tasked to work with seven towns jointly. Representatives from the seven towns have formed a Steering Committee that will set mutual and town-specific direction, tasks, and goals. The IREC will work exclusively with the towns of Thetford, Fairlee, Norwich, Strafford, Sharon, Barnard, and Woodstock to reduce overall energy use through conservation and efficiency measures, as well as to shift energy use from fossil fuels to renewable sources. These efforts will be primarily focused on, but not limited to, municipal or public buildings, vehicles and services. The position will produce quantifiable benefits to communities in terms of cost savings, energy reduction, and also in terms of carbon reductions. It is understood that many energy measures will have initial capital costs, but the goal is that annualized costs (direct financial and externalized carbon costs) will be reduced.
The Regional Commission’s Region is comprised of 30 towns in east-central Vermont with a combined population of 56,000. While most of the region is quite rural, we also have excellent recreational assets and a variety of cultural and educational opportunities. The Commission’s offices are beautifully located on a conserved farm on the outskirts of Woodstock, Vermont.
Starting salary is competitive, accompanied by an outstanding benefits package. Persons interested in applying should submit a cover letter, resume, writing sample, and three references to:
Peter G. Gregory, AICP, Executive Director
