EAST MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Vermont's Washington Electric Co-op is getting a new general manager.
The East Montpelier-based co-op says Patricia Richards will succeed Avram Patt on July 1.
For the past three years Richards has been a senior consultant for a company the co-op has relied on since 1997 for power supply planning, contracting and management, renewable energy development analysis, rate design and other regulatory matters.
In addition to her work for the co-op, Richards has managed a number of significant regulatory cases in other states during that time.
Washington Electric serves approximately 11,000 households and businesses in 41 towns in Orange, Washington and Caledonia Counties.
