Vermont’s second-largest power company says it will help limited-income customers by increasing a discount and by increasing contributions to a program that helps them pay for heating fuel.
Green Mountain Power Corp. President and CEO Mary Powell says the company is taking the steps to help Vermonters make it through a tough winter.
More than 2,200 GMP customers are eligible for discounts on the energy-charge on their monthly electric bill under the company’s Energy Support program. That discount will grow from 10 percent to 25 percent.
The company also is increasing its contributions to the WARMTH program, which uses money donated by the company and its customers to help low-income Vermonters buy heating fuels.
