    BURLINGTON - Vermont's flagship university and the state's largest power company are joining forces to develop energy efficiency programs and seek ways to protect the environment.

    UVM President Thomas Sullivan and Green Mountain Power CEO Mary Powell announced the details of the agreement on Tuesday at UVM.
