Thank you Adrienne! Great presentation.

[Adrienne] How do you see this community engagement outreach and communication aligning with the Community Partnership Initiative offered by the Utilities (in relationship to the weatherization activities)? How do you think the Bridgeport scope supercedes it?
Lyle Scruggs
01:36:34
There is a potential win-win for utilities and disadvantaged communities with strong weatherization in these areas. Households that are getting energy subsidies will need fewer subsidies if their homes are weatherized. The utility will have less energy demanded from those areas AND thus pay fewer energy subsides.
Lyle Scruggs
01:37:35
Disadvantaged household will be more energy independent as a result.
Adrienne Houel
01:40:08
Utilities are participating with BREP and so I expect their input going forward with specific programming. Wz has been cut back severely since Obama's AARA dried up and there is a world of buildings both residential and commercial needing weatherization. DEEP has a big program coming up, CAP agencies as well, so there is plenty of coordination to be done.

What proportion of stakeholder feedback is received by DEEP in meetings that it organizes, compared to meetings where it participates amongst the community?
