SOUTH ROYALTON, VT —Vermont Law School officials and U.S. Rep. Peter Welch on Monday, April 5, will announce new federal funding to help VLS expand its role as a national leader in smart-grid research, analysis and implementation standards.
During a 10 a.m. press conference in Hoff Lounge (Room 111) in Oakes Hall, Welch, Dean Jeff Shields, Environmental Law Center Director Marc Mihaly and VELCO Vice President Kerrick Johnson will discuss how the grant will help Vermont and other states deploy new energy-saving technology.
Vermont was awarded a separate $69 million grant in October to become the first state to implement a statewide smart-grid system.
