Billings North Lounge, Billings Center, University of Vermont*

Smart Grid is coming to Vermont. Do you know what it is and how it will impact our state? Potentially, Smart Grid will mean better electric service and provide customers with opportunities to reduce their carbon footprint and their electric bills. The addition of high speed information and communication technology to the electric grid will change the way utilities operate and how customers interact with them. Greater reliability, operational efficiency and customer choice are the cornerstones of Smart Grid.  This seminar is intended to provide an introduction to the Smart Grid system and a forum to answer audience questions.

Robert Dostis is Leader of External Affairs and Customer Relations at Green Mountain Power and the former Chair 
of the Vermont House Natural Resources and Energy committee.  He co-chairs the Clean Energy Development 
Fund Board and the E-Vermont Smart Grid Communication Workgroup.
All of our seminars are free and open to the public, and filmed by RETN.

*Please note that the location is not Memorial Lounge, but in the Billings Center, next to Ira Allen Chapel

Happy Thanksgiving!
