05 April 2016

New Flavor in Stores Now!
COLCHESTER, Vt – Saving energy, saving money and being more comfortable with a GMP eHome can be really sweet – so Green Mountain Power and Wilcox Ice Cream are celebrating by partnering to produce a brand new flavor of Wilcox ice-cream – “eHome Sweet Home.”
“Wilcox Ice Cream is known for being innovative, just like Green Mountain Power, and so we created a fabulous new flavor with fudge and chocolate truffles – real comfort food – to celebrate the comfort that GMP is creating for its customers with its eHome program,” said Christina Wilcox, vice-president of Wilcox.
Wilcox Ice Cream is a family-operated business that has made premium ice cream for 88 years with Vermont milk and cream. Headquartered in Manchester, it is opening a new location in Sunderland, across the street from GMP’s Sunderland district office.
“Like we are partnering with customers on a new energy future, we are so excited to partner with Wilcox Ice Cream to create this fun new flavor, eHome Sweet Home ice-cream,” said Mary Powell, president and CEO of Green Mountain Power. “Our eHome program has helped our customers save money and be more comfortable in their homes, so we thought this would be a sweet way to celebrate!”
Green Mountain Power’s eHome program is a holistic energy home renovation program to help customers save money and increase comfort in cold and warm months. It can include weatherization, air source cooling and heating pumps, heat pump water heaters, solar, LED lighting and technology to track and control usage. It also includes innovative home automation controls to see energy use in real time and allow for control of thermostats, outlets, lights and heat pumps.
“This comprehensive approach to energy is innovative, simple, and satisfying – just like the new ice cream flavor. We hope people will enjoy eHome Sweet Home!” Powell said.  
The ice cream will be sold at stores across Vermont and will be available starting today.
