Russell Construction will build GMP innovation center

Russell Construction Services will oversee the building of Green Mountain Power’s Energy Innovation Center in Rutland.
The utility announced Wednesday that Russell was chosen from almost a dozen bidding contractors.
The Rutland-based company will work with NBF Architects and GMP officials, developing a formal construction timeline and managing the budget, the subcontractor bid process and budget, safety and regulatory compliance at the site, and all day-to-day construction work.
The EIC, which is going in the former Eastman’s site on Merchants Row, will include office space, displays and interactive educational opportunities.  It will include a heat-pump system and solar generation, and will be accessible for tours.
Russell will begin working on the pre-construction planning process with NBF immediately, with a target date of March 1 to begin construction.
GMP expects to move to the new facility by Oct. 31.

GMP rate decrease was first an increase, officials say

Green Mountain Power’s upcoming customer rate reduction is a decrease that hasn’t happened in more than 20 years, but state officials said the company initially sought a rate increase.

A GMP rate decrease of 0.4 percent for consumers initially was proposed by the company as a rate increase of somewhere under 2 percent, according to state Department of Public Service Commissioner Elizabeth Miller.

“There are some remaining areas where we think the company needs to do better in the future,” Miller said. “We were very pleased that we got them down to a decrease.”
