How clean can we really heat in Vermont? Clean electric generation and transportation are well understood, heating is not. Hidden in the basement and shrouded in technical jargon, heating is our greatest opportunity to reduce our individual carbon footprint.

Join VBSR and Jeff Rubin of Sustainable Heating for a webinar that will help simplify the complex story behind our practical, affordable, and clean heating options. Sustainable Heating founder, Jeff Rubin, will connect climate science with heating science and reveal the inside information typically reserved for heating professionals. A marketing professional for 30 years, and an admitted heating geek, Rubin is fired up about clean heating. This webinar will be chock-full of surprising data-points and practical tips about how we can all pay it forward just by understanding a few heating basics. Participants will own a new confidence in their ability to speak authoritatively on the basics of climate-smart heating.


Closed captioning via live transcription will be available during this workshop. The workshop will take place virtually, and the details to join the workshop will be sent via email to all who register, in advance of the event.
