Name and location of host site: City of Red Lodge - Red Lodge, MT
Title: Sustainability Educator
Reports to: Energy Corps Program Director
Term of service: October 1, 2019 - August 28, 2020
Anticipated service schedule: 1700 hours over the course of service term. Roughly 40 hours per week. Occasional evening/weekend hours may be necessary.
Position Summary: The 2013 Red Lodge Growth Policy cites a policy under the Climate Protection section of demonstrating a commitment to environmental protection and sustainability. Infrastructure and city services goals in the Growth Policy include a commitment to recycling in municipal operations and mitigating light pollution affecting the night sky. Additionally, a baseline assessment of the City’s energy and carbon footprint was performed in 2017, and a group of local citizens convened to set reduction targets and create an action plan. The City of Red Lodge Energy Conservation Plan was completed and unanimously adopted by council in October of 2018.
The City believes there is a need to reduce energy costs for City buildings, as general fund revenues are stable while operating costs continue to escalate. Implementation of the Energy Conservation Plan also requires staff support. An Energy Corps member would greatly assist the City in reaching its short term goal of reducing carbon emissions to 10% below 2016 levels by year 2021, and long term goal of being 50% below 2016 levels by year 2040.
