Construction Has Begun on the NEK Connector

Construction of the NEK Connector has begun. The $14.5 million dollar project, which is being managed by Vermont Electric Cooperative (VEC), has been planned since 2010 when VEC received a grant from the Economic Development Administration (EDA). The NEK Connector will significantly improve electric reliability by replacing a line that was originally built in the early to mid-20th century and expand telecommunications services in the Northeast Kingdom (NEK) by providing fiber optic cables to private telecommunications companies.

A new position has become available on VEC’s Board of Directors. The position represents the towns of Alburgh, Grand Isle, Isle La Motte, North Hero, and South Hero.

VEC Line Workers Rescue Cat

Everyone knows that if a cat is stuck in a tree, you call the fire department. But who do you call if a cat is stuck on top of an electric pole? Your local electric cooperative, of course. On Monday, March 9, Vermont Electric Cooperative (VEC) received just such a call. Around noon, the phone rang in the control center and System Operator Melanie Butler received a report of a cat perched precariously on top a pole connecting one of the co-op’s three-phase electric lines in Highgate Center.
