BURLINGTON — The head of the electric utility in Vermont’s largest city is going to retire.
Burlington Electric General Manager Barbara Grimes said she’s going to retire at the end of June from the post she has held for the last 14 years.
In a Monday letter to Burlington Mayor Miro Weinberger, Grimes said she’s looking forward to working with city officials to help choose her replacement.
Weinberger said that during her years at Burlington Electric, Grimes used organizational efficiency, conservation initiatives, and strategic renewable energy investments to make the department greener, while keeping the cost of energy low to the customers.
