Finding a Renewable Energy Supplier for PMM

The CCC was given the go ahead by the Meeting to look at returning the meetinghouse to a renewable energy supplier. This link  will take you to a spreadsheet that lists  key questions that the committee came across and/or developed that should be answered when switching energy providers. The CCC then looked at 5 different renewable energy suppliers for PMM and provided answers to the key questions in the spreadsheet. Also, here is a link to a document that provides some clarifications to a few of the spreadsheet questions.
