    After months of work, the new Green Mountain Power Energy Innovation Center will officially open Nov. 20, with a public opening event starting at noon.

    The company intends the building as “a working example of energy innovation, the focal point of GMP’s renewable energy development efforts, and a model of environmentally sustainable construction and operations.”

    Located in the former Eastman’s building, the EIC will house GMP employees and staff from Efficiency Vermont and Neighborworks of Western Vermont, classroom/conference space, and public exhibits focused on energy and the environment.

    The design is by Ralph Nimtz of NBF Architects of Rutland. The project has been managed by Russell Construction Services of Rutland. The building is expected to receive Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design certification from the U.S. Green Building Council.
