LAUGENOUR PROMOTES ENERGY CONSERVATION
- Makes public his household's energy consumption
- Sets a measurable example of leadership and conservation
- Encourages tax programs that establish benchmarks and reward
Lee Scott Laugenour
calls for new debate, legislation, and policies to encourage
energy conservation, noting the scientific consensus that carbon
and methane emissions related to energy use are feeding and
accelerating harmful climate change. Laugenour is the Green-Rainbow
Party candidate for State Representative in the 4th Berkshire
long believed that conservation is an alternative energy that
should be encouraged through incentives just as wind, solar,
and hydro developments should be," Laugenour said.
Laugenour and his
husband, Mark Woodward, released their household's annual energy
consumption today, using the most recent readings available.
Their consumption is well below available averages for similar
households. They reside in a 1724 sq ft two-story colonial home
in Lenox built in 1900. They share a 2007 Prius, which averages
46 mpg. They have had two MassSave energy audits in the last
of the Laugenour/Woodward household:
Grid does a good job of creating energy reports that compare
a household's electricity usage against 100 similar households.
Our household consistently is placed in the bottom 20th percentile
of homes, meaning Mark and I consume less than 80% of similar
households. I would like to work with other private and public
utility enterprises to craft similar reports to help measure
and benchmark conservation initiatives.”
Environment Committee, on which Laugenour served, began discussions
last year on ways that the town could offer conservation incentives
via the property tax. Energy committees in other communities
in the 4th Berkshire District have had similar conversations.
will take the lead in promoting legislation on Beacon Hill that
empowers municipalities to use local tax mechanisms in order
to be more innovative in measurably decreasing climate-warming
emissions,” Laugenour said.
envision a system that would reward year over year reductions
as much if not more than it would reward actual levels of low
consumption. I look forward to working with municipalities and
members of the public to help them make meaningful progress

which will be decided next week.
