Join Vermont Businesses for Social Responsibility (VBSR) and Green Mountain Power for networking, food, drinks, and learning from Vermont businesses working at every level to strengthen Vermont’s electrical grid to build equitable access and resilient communities. Recent extreme weather events from climate change have highlighted the need for reliable access to power for the economy, public health, individual safety, and environment. Panelists will share their unique perspectives on fleet electrification, battery storage, renewable energy, microgrids, and action through policy.

Join us for networking at 5:00 PM, followed by our panel discussion from 5:45 – 7:00 PM and a reception from 7:00 – 8:00 PM at Green Mountain Power’s beautiful space in Rutland!
