ReVision Energy staffers and guests watch Mary Powell, CEO of Green Mountain Power, which no longer calls itself a utility company, instead dubbing themselves an “Energy Transition Company.” Mary’s keynote speech was a breath of fresh air, showcasing how a forward-thinking grid operator can pair renewable energy, energy storage systems, electric vehicles and other technologies to rapidly transform the grid in a way that benefits all stakeholders. A stunning factoid: in 2015, nearly all of Vermont’s in-state net electricity generation was produced by renewable energy, including hydroelectric, biomass, wind, and solar resources. Vermont has among the highest per capita solar jobs in the country. Green Mountain Power was also the first utility company to become a Certified B Corp.
