MONTPELIER — A nonprofit group that has a 38 percent stake in the company that owns and manages Vermont’s high voltage electric transmission system is seeking three people to serve on the VELCO board of directors.
The Vermont Low Income Trust for Electricity was formed as a part of the now-completed merger of Green Mountain Power and the Central Vermont Public Service Corp.
VELCO is owned by the state’s electric utilities and the Low Income Trust.
Candidates for the board must possess technical, governance, public interest and other experience.
