The Loudoun County Board of Supervisors has scheduled an Energy Strategies Planning Workshop for Wednesday, September 29, 2021, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. The workshop is the next planning step in Loudoun County’s effort to update the 2009 Loudoun County Energy Strategy (PDF).
The September 29 workshop will include a facilitated discussion on the priorities, process and approach for updating the county’s Energy Strategy, a comprehensive, 30-year road map of energy strategies for the Loudoun County government and community, which was adopted by the Board of Supervisors in December 2009.
Staff from the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments will join county staff to discuss the role of Loudoun County government in energy sustainability, possible funding mechanisms for implementing the energy strategy, and the identification of new programs and initiatives that can benefit all residents and businesses.
Information expected to be presented at the workshop includes local, regional and federal goals and mandates to reduce energy and greenhouse gas emissions; energy usage data trends for Loudoun and the region; and attainable energy goals that county staff and the Board-appointed Environmental Commission may research for future consideration by the Board.
The Board Room in the Loudoun County Government Center, located at 1 Harrison Street SE, Leesburg, will be open for the members of the public who wish to view the meeting in person; however, room capacity limits will be in effect. Members of the public are encouraged to view the meeting remotely. The meeting will be televised on Comcast Government Channel 23 and Verizon FiOS Channel 40 and livestreamed at loudoun.gov/meetings.
Documents for the meeting will be posted at loudoun.gov/bosdocuments.
