Accomplishments

  • Sandwich Town Petition Warrant Article
    On March 11, 2020 the Sandwich Climate Action Coalition introduced an article petition to the Sandwich, NH, annual Town Meeting  “To see if the Town of Sandwich, NH will vote to commit to a goal of 100% reliance on renewable sources of electricity by 2030 and for all other energy needs, including heating and transportation, by 2050.”  After  almost an hour of debate, it passed.  With the passing of that article we join five other towns in New Hampshire with similar resolutions and more than 160 nationwide.
  • Home Energy Efficiency Workshop
    On Feb, 25, 2020  the Sandwich Climate Action Coalition, Squam Lakes Conservation Society, Friends of the Samuel H. Wentworth Library and Pemi Climate Emergency Coalition hosted  Button Up New Hampshire, the popular home energy savings workshop series at the Benz Community Center in Sandwich. More than 20 people attended. The NHSaves Button Up Workshop is a 1.5 hour presentation about how to improve the energy efficiency of your home.
  • Helps Elect Renewable Friendly Board of Director Candidates to the New Hampshire Electric Co-op. In spring, 2020 the Sandwich Climate Action Coalition worked with  an ad-hoc broadband interest group and nearby town’s climate action groups to ensure broadband and greenhouse gas reduction friendly board of directors candidates were elected to the NHEC. It was a powerful example of grassroots work and organizing.
