Colchester, Vt., January 31, 2011 — Now there's a new iPhone application that brings you to the latest about green living, green business and Green Mountain Power.
As one of the first utility mobile phone apps in the country, Green Mountain Power has made it possible for anyone with an iPhone to check in on the most recent environmental information or read about green business news.
"We're excited to use the latest technology to bring useful information to our customers," said Mary Powell, president and chief executive officer at Green Mountain Power. "We are driven to use technology to improve service, and this offers customers — and others — an easy way to follow the latest in green news."
The GMP iPhone app includes a Green Biz section and a Green Life section, which offers suggestions for getting more out of your computer, environmentally friendly cleaning solutions and other practical information for reducing energy use and greenhouse gas emissions.
"Part of our goal is to make it easier for customers to connect with us," said Powell. "Now it is simple to contact Green Mountain Power directly through the app."
Green Mountain Power plans to add additional features to the mobile app that will give customers the ability to manage their account from their iPhone.
The app will continue to be modified, and eventually customers will also be able to receive up-to-date outage information and alerts, locate a charging station for an electric vehicle, and display home energy use.
The Green Mountain Power iPhone app can be downloaded at no charge at Apple's iTunes App store. Green Mountain Power is working to modify the app to be compatible with other mobile devices as well.
