Vermont Technical College

The Vermont State Colleges board of trustees is not going to change the name of the system after one of the five institutions became a university.

Officials at Vermont Technical College say an unofficial all-school competition and a grant from IBM helped reduce the school's electric bill by more than $40,000 in one year.

IBM also worked with the Howard Center, Vermont's largest health and human services organization, to help community members understand and establish procedures for managing the use, cost and conservation of energy.
