Survey for GMP Proposed 4.98% Rate Increase

06 September 2017

On April 14, 2017, Green Mountain Power (GMP) filed a revised tariff with the Vermont Public Utility Commission (formerly the Public Service Board) reflecting an overall increase in rates of 4.98%, with a request that the tariff take effect on January 1, 2018.

On May 15, 2017, the Vermont Department of Public Service recommended the Commission suspend the effective date of the rate change and open an investigation of GMP’s tariff filing. The Commission has adopted the Department’s recommendation and will conduct a traditional cost-of-service investigation of GMP’s tariff filing of April 14, 2017, for rates to become effective on or after January 1, 2018.

Public hearings were held in Montpelier, Rutland, St. Albans and Brattleboro.

Consumers can still provide input and comments by taking a short survey. The survey is anonymous and won't be part of the public record for the case. The Department is interested in hearing from the public and encourages consumers to take the survey to help inform its investigation into the case. The survey can be accessed at GMP 4.98% Proposed Rate Increase (Case # 17-3112) survey.
