Vt. utility to make Rutland efficiency example

MONTPELIER — Vermont’s largest electric utility wants to turn the city of Rutland into a national example of energy efficiency while helping the community revitalize itself, officials said Wednesday.

Green Mountain Power officials offered a 14-part plan that would include solar panels and vehicle charging stations, which could attract new workers to the area and help re-energize the city as it deals with a weak economy, an aging population, crime, and illegal drug use.
