Waterbury Center, VT– On Wednesday, February 19, the Vermont Public Power Supply Authority (VPPSA) hosted a legislative reception in the Cedar Creek Room of the Vermont State House. The reception provided an opportunity for Vermont legislators to connect with managers of municipal electric utilities. This was the first legislative reception hosted by VPPSA.

The event featured remarks by the Commissioner of the Vermont Department of Public Service, June Tierney, on behalf of Governor Phil Scott. Commissioner Tierney commented on VPPSA’s ability to combine “tradition and innovation” through its work with local municipal governments. Additionally, Commissioner Tierney expressed appreciation for affordability of electric rates, a value shared by both VPPSA and the Department of Public Service.

“We are grateful to the senators and representatives that attended our reception,” said VPPSA General Manager, Ken Nolan. “VPPSA strives to keep its member municipalities vibrant, and we appreciate the support our state legislators provide to the communities they represent.”
