FTC asked to consider GMP’s renewable claims  

Credit:  By WCAX News | Sep 15, 2014 | www.wcax.com ~~

Did Vermont’s largest electric utility make misleading claims about the renewable energy it produces?

Green Mountain Power has invested heavily in renewable energy production in recent years – including a wind farm in Lowell and numerous solar installations. A petition filed by four environmentalists claims GMP is deceiving customers by selling energy credits for that power to out-of-state utilities. The plaintiffs say Vermont consumers are bearing the costs of producing renewable energy without actually getting the benefits. The Federal Trade Commission is being asked to look into it.

GMP maintains it is in compliance with the law, using the renewable energy here and selling the credits out of state.
