No-Idling Campaigns Are Gaining Traction

Four towns in Fairfield County plus the town of North Haven have made community-wide commitments to rminimize engine idling, starting with Ridgefield several years ago. Now, Wilton, Westport and Weston are also on board. Although state law sets three minutes as the maximum time vehicles can legally idle their engines (except in specific circumstances), our CTEnergyNetwork members in the five aforementioned towns are committed to a general 10-second limit, due to noise pollution, public health concerns and just plain common sense.

YEAR OF LOCAL ACTION

… 2018 has been named the Year of Local Action. And the Eastern CT Green Action group is leading the way. ECGA was formed by several people from towns in eastern Connecticut. Initially most people were from Mansfield; as of now, people from Andover, Ashford, Chaplin, Coventry, Eastford, Hampton, Lebanon, Pomfret, Scotland, Tolland, Willington and Windham are members.

With the publication of his excellent weekly newsletter CT Green News, ECGA co-founder Peter Millman is helping us Nutmeggers stay up to date on issues, events and opportunities for concerned citizens to connect with their elected officials. He has published over 50 editions of his newsletter, and would love to broaden his every Friday distribution. Just contact Peter via info@easternctgreenaction.com and benefit from his convenient digest of important news and environmentally-focused online postings.
