Rutland, VT – Green Mountain Power is pleased to invite customers to an open house at its Energy Innovation Center (EIC) in Downtown Rutland (see map) on Saturday, May 2, 2015 beginning at 9:00 a.m. Come and learn about GMP’s exciting line of comprehensive energy efficient products and services that will empower customers to take control of their energy use and save money. This is the third open house GMP has offered in partnership with Efficiency Vermont and Neighborworks of Western Vermont to feature new products and services. With spring finally here, now is the time to consider home improvements like heat pumps, water heaters and more.
We’ve had a great response from customers who attended the first two open houses,” said GMP spokesperson Kristin Carlson. “They came to learn about how to save money and make their homes more comfortable, and our experts were able to show them firsthand how our products work and what might be best for them.”
Carlson continued, “GMP is dedicated to partnering with customers on a new energy future where customers have more control, can save money and increase comfort in cold and warm months.”
At the EIC open house, customers can find out about water heaters and heat pumps and how to get one installed with no upfront costs. Heat pumps can help you save money, improve the comfort of your home, and help the environment. Heat pumps use 50% less energy than traditional oil or propane systems and they offer efficient heating and cooling.
GMP also offers eHome, a comprehensive home energy makeover. It can include weatherization, heat pumps, heat pump water heaters, solar, LED lighting and technology to track and control your usage. Sara and Mark Borkowski were the first eHome family and will be offering tours of their Baxter Street home.
Becoming an eHome was a great decision for our family and I would encourage everyone to get more information and find out how to start saving money,” said Mark Borkowski. “It’s great that GMP and other local partners are stepping up to make energy changes less confusing for homeowners and more affordable for working families.”
The open house is Saturday, May 2, 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. at GMP’s Energy Innovation Center in Downtown Rutland. You can RSVP at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 802-747-6881. There will be local snacks and electric vehicles to shuttle customers to and from the Borkowski’s eHome. Representatives from Neighborworks of Western Vermont and Efficiency Vermont will also be available to answer questions.
