Net Zero

         John Hollar, the Mayor of Montpelier, came in on the 27th to speak to kids about the Net Zero project. Net Zero is a project that will create a reusable source of energy, and eliminate fossil fuels in Montpelier. There are only a few types of energy that can be reused, such as solar power, wind power, hydro-power, and biofuels. There are three things that energy is mainly used for: heating, transportation, and electricity. The easiest to completely replace with reusable energy would be electricity. John Hollar would like to see Montpelier be the most energy efficient capital in the US.
