Assisting Municipalities at No Cost

ANCA’s Energy Circuit Riders help municipalities plan, finance and implement energy-saving upgrades to buildings and infrastructure as well as projects that focus on renewable energy technologies. Working side-by-side with municipal officials, they provide capacity and expertise to support informed decision-making.

Adding Time and Capacity

ANCA’s Energy Circuit Riders understand the challenges faced by municipal leaders in their efforts to provide and maintain affordable, energy efficient and functional public buildings. As trained problem solvers, they respond to local needs and circumstances in a variety of ways:

  • Identifying pathways for project cost-savings and offsets
  • Establishing baselines and comparisons for building energy performance
  • Creating economies of scale through project aggregation and partnerships
  • Supporting cost:benefit decisions with appropriate information and methods
  • Providing guidance for project permitting and property assessment
  • Coordinating project communications, paperwork and reporting
  • Offering a neutral perspective to assist decision-makers and their constituents

ANCA’s Energy Circuit Riders are long-standing residents of the North Country. They are public facilitators, researchers, technical experts and builders. Each has served in a leadership capacity within their community and is well suited to support municipal pursuits for affordable, energy efficient and functional public works.
