Colchester, Vt – Green Mountain Power today announced its support for the Environmental Protection Agency’s new proposal on carbon emissions from power plants. The EPA’s goal is in line with GMP’s mission to deliver low-cost, low-carbon, and reliable power, which customers consistently say they value.
“We at GMP support these goals and view the new proposal as a positive move toward a cleaner, more cost-effective and reliable energy future,” said Mary Powell, president and CEO of Green Mountain Power. “GMP is also embracing an energy future that has more customers powering their own homes and businesses, which is why we are working so hard to continue to increase the availability of solar power. In addition, GMP’s investments in smart grid technology, renewable resources, and practical efficiency products for customers – exemplified by our Energy home of the Future in Rutland and efforts to make Rutland the energy city of the future – will save customers money and reduce fossil fuel use.”
