“Fast Company” this week announced its annual ranking of the “world’s Most Innovative Companies” for 2017, honoring companies that exemplify “the best in nimble business and impactful innovation.”

Green Mountain Power was named to its Top 10 Most Innovative Companies in Energy for its “groundbreaking work to partner with customers on a new energy future.

“Green Mountain Power is laser focused on energy transformation, with more reliable, cost-effective and low-carbon energy, by radically transforming the antiquated grid system to one that is more home, business, and community centered and leverages innovations like battery storage, the award stated.

“GMP’s recognition on this prestigious list is richly deserved, as Mary Powell and her team have consistently demonstrated that even a smaller utility can distinguish itself through fearless innovation and relentless focus on enhancing the customer experience,” said David Crane, former CEO of NRG Energy and NRG Yield.

“Other utilities, which persist in the old utility model, fighting a rearguard action against progress in the power industry, will be left behind. GMP’s customers need not have that fear.”
