|2013 Ice Storm - A Letter from CEO, Dave Hallquist|
January 2, 2014
As I pen this letter, all is relatively quiet on the Vermont Electric Co-op system as we begin the New Year. This is a far cry from the conclusion of 2013, which we'll remember for the unprecedented ice storm that left thousands upon thousands of VEC members in the dark—often in sub-freezing temperatures—for prolonged periods of time. This storm will go down in VEC's history as our largest storm ever.
|VEC Sounds Alert on Scam|
Vermont Electric Cooperative (VEC) is warning consumers about a telephone scam that preys on utility cutomers. Like other cooperatives around the coutry, VEC has received reports from customers who are being contacted by scammers asking for credit card information.
The scam involves a phone call to a consumer by a perpetrator posing as a VEC employee seeking immediate payment for service. Consumers are threatened with having service disconnected within 30 minutes unless they make a credit card payment by phone.
