Fauquier County Conservation Roundtable (FCCR) meets quarterly and on April 23 2012 the keynote speaker was Michael Rainger. His presentation included a 5 year history of conservation / sustainability efforts for Fauquier County Virginia with a theme of Finite Energy Conservation / Renewable Technologies leading to more sustainable communities with links to disaster recovery from natural events.
A discussion ensued around accurate / direct taxpayer cost savings bench marked on prior high year energy costs (FY09) and true cost avoidance when electric power utility rates and surcharges combined with other fuel expense increases are averaging around 10% per year (FY05 to FY09 normalized for weather and 2 new schools coming online).
The PDF (only 9 pages above - click to view) outlines the results of that discussion and further research by Better Practices (2004 - 2012), Energized research - Learning Institute (2013), and Brighter Communities Corporation (2014)
