Why many GMP customers saw bills jump

Posted: Updated:
COLCHESTER, Vt. -

If you're a Green Mountain Power customer you may have noticed a larger bill than usual in February.

The utility says that's because it made a one-time shift in its billing cycle, adding additional days to the billing period over last year.

In February 2012, customers were paying for 29 days of service compared to 36 days this year.

"They may be getting more than a week worth of electricity in this bill, but if they look on their bill at the average use per day they can see that it is very similar, most likely, to last year," said Dotty Schnure of Green Mountain Power.

Schnure points out that actual utility rates were slightly lower in February 2013 as compared to February 2012.
