Woolf: Cost of Efficiency

Sep 16, 2014

Recently the media reported that fifteen Vermont ski areas would receive $5 million from Efficiency Vermont to help them purchase more than 2,000 energy efficient snow-making guns, replacing older, less efficient ones, and saving the ski resorts millions of dollars.
 

Recently the Annie E. Casey Foundation released its annual survey of how well children are doing in the 50 states. Titled Kids Count, the study found that Vermont ranked second in the nation in its measure of the overall well-being of children. Only Massachusetts ranked higher.

The study looked at sixteen indicators of how well kids are doing, measuring their economic well-being, education levels, health, and family living conditions.
