There’s a growing debate in Montpelier over how Vermont’s largest utility, CVPS, should return $21 million to its ratepayers as part of its merger with Green Mountain Power.

But the AARP and a group of lawmakers are insisting that CVPS send the money directly back to its customers.
Dorset State Representative Patti Komline and Green Mountain Power CEO Mary Powell present both sides of this issue.
