first_imgVisiting Nurse & Hospice of Vermont and New Hampshire (VNAVNH), and VGo Communications, the leader in robotic telepresence, announced their agreement to be the first to deploy telepresence robots for use in delivering care in Vermont and New Hampshire clients’ homes.”We are continually looking for ways to increase levels of care, independence and safety in the home,” said Jeanne A. McLaughlin MSN, MSEd, President/CEO of VNAVNH.  “VGo is the first affordable solution that enables us to expand client engagement without a dramatic increase in cost, while still preserving a person to person interaction.  People often need more care and attention, not less, but that’s hard to do in rural areas without an army of staff.  VGo’s light weight and ease of deployment means that nurses and doctors can now visit with select patients more frequently.   By eliminating the need to travel for each visit, professional staff can better utilize their time and respond to client’s needs and unforeseen problems that arise much quicker.”VNAH will initially leverage its fleet of VGo initially in four ways:Care and support for clients recovering from surgery or for others with complex medical needsClinical specialty support for home healthcare or hospice nursesWound care assessment and treatment consultationConsultation for chemotherapy, antibiotics, hydration or other infusion therapies”VNAVNH’s visionary approach to improving healthcare at home is a perfect match with our goals of replicating a person in a distant location at a very affordable cost,” said Peter N. Vicars, CEO of VGo.  “For about $10 a day, their nurses can visit more clients, spending more time with each one and less time on the road.  Researchers have proven that patients enjoy interacting with their caregivers using VGo and look forward to each visit.”For more information on VNAVNH, visit http://www.vnavnh.org(link is external)For more information on VGo, visit http://www.vgocom.com(link is external)About Visiting Nurse & Hospice of Vermont and New HampshireThe Visiting Nurse & Hospice of Vermont and New Hampshire (VNAVNH) is a compassionate, non-profit home healthcare organization.  VNAVNH is committed to providing the highest quality home health care and support services to individuals and their families, while also serving the communities in their region with education and wellness programs.Serving nearly 113 towns in Vermont and New Hampshire and covering 4,000 square miles along the Connecticut River Valley, the VNAVNH cares for more than 5,000 people each year, making over 132,000 home visits to people of all ages and at all stages of life.About VGoVGo Communications, Inc. develops and markets visual communications solutions for the hospital, home, school and workplace.  VGo has leveraged the recent trends of widespread wireless networks, lower specialized component costs and the universal acceptance of video as a communications medium to become the Robotic Telepresence market leader.With the VGo solution, an individual’s presence is replicated in a distant location such that they can interact and perform their job in ways not previously possible.  Now they can see, be seen, hear, be heard and move around in any remote facility ‘just as if they were there.  VGo enables: healthcare providers to deliver lower cost services and improved quality of care, businesses to increase productivity of remote and travelling employees, and homebound students to attend school ‘all with a great user experience and at an affordable price.SOURCE  WEST LEBANON and NASHUA, N.H., July 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ —  VGo Communications, Inc.last_img read more

Welch urges EPA to relax ethanol mandate as corn prices hurt Vermont dairy farmers

first_imgWith the worst drought in 50 years pushing feed prices higher and adding to the struggles of Vermont dairy farmers, Representative Peter Welch is urging Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Lisa Jackson to bring relief by relaxing the mandate that requires the blending of ethanol in US transportation fuel. Welch and a bipartisan group of 156 lawmakers ‘30 Democrats and 126 Republicans ‘want Jackson to reduce or waive the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS), which requires that 10 percent of all transportation fuel in the U.S. come from corn-based ethanol. Producing that much ethanol can consume up to 40 percent of the U.S. corn supply. And with the drought causing expected yields to plummet and prices to soar ‘ price forecasts are up nearly 40 percent in a month ‘Welch and his colleagues are urging the EPA to act now.    ‘This is common sense. Corn prices are surging and Vermont dairy farmers are struggling. Whatever we can do to bring relief amidst the worst drought in 50 years we should do,’Welch said. ‘I’d like to eliminate the ethanol mandate forever, but let’s at least waive it temporarily for struggling farmers in this extremely difficult drought.’ Welch has been a House leader working to end the unprecedented taxpayer support enjoyed by the ethanol industry, which includes the RFS and a protective import tariff of $0.54 per gallon. An additional $.045 per gallon tax credit for ethanol producers ‘which was in place for over 30 years and amounted to a $6 billion taxpayer expenditure in 2010 ‘was ended by Congress in January.  The EPA has opened a 30-day public comment period on the request to waive the RFS.

GMP selects Russell Construction for Energy Innovation Center project

first_imgGreen Mountain Power has selected Russell Construction Services of Rutland as construction manager for the companys new Energy Innovation Center on Merchants Row.  The decision comes after a lengthy bid and interview process involving nearly a dozen companies from throughout Vermont. Russell brings a tremendous sense of vision and purpose to the project, an intimate understanding of the issues associated with a major downtown project, and an understanding of the importance of the project to the company, the city of Rutland and the state of Vermont, GMP President and CEO Mary Powell said.  We had a tremendous field of candidates, but our selection committee was unanimous in their choice of Russell as the best possible manager for the project. As construction manager, Russell Construction will work with NBF Architects and GMP officials to oversee all aspects of the Energy Innovation Center project.  Russell will work with NBF to develop a formal construction timeline, and will manage the entire subcontractor bid process and budget, manage safety and regulatory compliance at the site, and manage all day-to-day construction work.  The EIC will be the focal point of GMPs renewable energy development efforts, including efforts to make Rutland the solar capital of the northeast, and an information resource for customers.  The center will include office space, displays and interactive educational opportunities.  It will include a heat pump system and solar generation, and will be accessible for tours.  Vermont Energy Investment Corp and Neighborworks of Western Vermont will co-locate some staff with GMP in the new facility. Russell will begin working on the preconstruction planning process with NBF immediately, with a target date to begin construction of March 1.  Mold and asbestos mitigation in the building is nearly complete. GMP expects to move into the new facility, in the former Eastmans Building, by Oct. 31. John Russell III, the third-generation president of the company, said the project, like the restoration of the Paramount Theatre a decade ago, would be a legacy project for his company.  GMPs plans for the Eastman Building will have an extremely positive impact on downtown Rutland, much like the Paramount restoration, Russell said.  This is a transformational project for the city, and we wanted to be a part of it from the minute we heard about it.  We are proud to be able to play an important and continuing role in downtown Rutlands revitalization. Steve Costello, GMPs vice president for generation and energy innovation, said Russell was selected from a field of strong finalists.  We see this as a true partnership, Costello said.  There is a great fit with Russell, and we believe the company will do an excellent job on the project. Russell Construction Services is part of the John A. Russell family of companies, founded in Rutland in 1934 by Russell IIIs grandfather.  My grandfather and father built our reputation by doing what was right for each client and our community, Russell said.  This project will allow us to continue that tradition in a very meaningful project, a project we will be proud to showcase for generations to come. About Green Mountain PowerGreen Mountain Power (www.greenmountainpower.com(link is external)) transmits, distributes and sells electricity in the state of Vermont.

New sustainable energy financing available at VEDA

first_imgNew financing for Vermont commercial, small business and agricultural sustainable energy projects is available at the Vermont Economic Development Authority (VEDA).  A bill creating the new Vermont Sustainable Energy Loan Fund was signed into law by Governor Peter Shumlin this summer, and project applications are now being invited by the Authority.‘This program will provide a strong impetus to the many Vermont businesses and farms of all sizes that seek to invest in their energy futures in sustainable ways, lower their carbon footprints, and increase their bottom lines,’ said Jo Bradley, VEDA Chief Executive Officer.  ‘The Fund will also provide loan guarantees to participating financial institutions that enroll loans made to businesses to improve overall energy efficiency.’  According to Statute, the purpose of the new Fund is to enable VEDA ‘to make loans and provide other forms of financing for projects that stimulate and encourage development and deployment of sustainable energy projects in the State of Vermont,’ with ‘sustainable energy’ defined as energy efficiency, renewable energy, and technologies that enhance or support the development and implementation of renewable energy or energy efficiency, or both.  ‘The Authority greatly appreciates the efforts of those who helped craft and assure passage of this important legislation,’ said Bradley. ‘We thank Governor Shumlin, Legislative Leaders, State Treasurer Beth Pearce, the Department of Public Service, the Vermont Energy Investment Corporation (VEIC), the Lake Champlain Regional Chamber of Commerce, and the Vermont Bankers Association for their leadership on this issue.’ In recent years, VEDA has already approved millions of dollars in financing for commercial and agricultural energy generation and efficiency projects, supporting investments in hydropower, solar photovoltaic, wind, digester and biomass initiatives.  However, Bradley said the new Fund will help the Authority improve operational efficiencies by consolidating all its energy lending under a single umbrella. The Sustainable Energy Loan Fund has four separate programs:The Small Business Energy Loan Program (SBELP)  provides loans up to $350,000 for smaller qualifying commercial sustainable energy projects;The Commercial Energy Loan Program (CELP) provides loans up to $2.0 million for relatively larger qualifying sustainable energy projects;The Agricultural Energy Loan Program (AELP) provides loans for qualifying agriculture and forest product-based sustainable energy projects; and·         The Energy Loan Guarantee Program (ELGP) provides loan guarantees to participating financial institutions that enroll loans made to businesses to improve the businesses’ overall energy efficiency.  The guarantee program will be backed by a VEDA-funded Reserve, by the Vermont Public Service Department, and by VEIC through Federal funding they have received for sustainable energy projects.Bradley noted that while energy lending will be done by VEDA, the Clean Energy Development Fund (CEDF) will continue to award grants for energy projects.  VEIC will provide an analysis of the energy savings from projects seeking financing from the Fund.  ‘The Fund will help Vermont enhance the state’s available capital capacity for sustainable energy projects, build momentum in the development of qualified energy projects, and help create new jobs throughout the state,’ said Bradley. Interested businesses and farms are encouraged to contact VEDA’s experienced commercial and agricultural loan officers, their community bankers, or their Regional Development Corporations (RDCs) for more information about how the Authority might help support their sustainable energy project plans.  Visit www.veda.org(link is external) to learn more, or call 802-828-JOBS.About VEDA The Vermont Economic Development Authority (VEDA) is Vermont’s statewide economic development finance lender.  VEDA was created by the General Assembly in 1974 with a mission ‘to contribute to the creation and retention of quality jobs in Vermont by providing loans and other financialsupport to eligible and qualified Vermont industrial, commercial and agricultural enterprises.’Over the years, VEDA has grown and adapted its financing programs to keep pace with an ever-changing economy.  VEDA offers a wide range of low-cost lending options for Vermont businesses andfarms of all sizes, and the Authority’s lending solutions are customized to each borrower’s individual needs.  Whether in the form of direct loans, tax-exempt bond issuance or loan guarantee support, VEDA’s innovative financing programs help ensure that Vermont businesses and farms have the capital they need to grow and succeed.  VEDA most often lends in conjunction with banks and other financing partners, helping to stimulate economic development activity in Vermont.Since 1974, VEDA has provided over $1.9 billion in financing assistance to thousands of eligible Vermont entrepreneurs, manufacturers, small businesses, family farms, and agricultural enterprises, helping them to realize their business growth goals, create jobs, and enhance the vitality of Vermont’s economy.  For more information about VEDA, visit www.veda.org(link is external) or call 802-828-JOBS.last_img read more

State of Vermont sells $110 million in bonds

first_imgBond buyers responded positively to this week’s Vermont bond sale. State Treasurer Beth Pearce announced today that $110 million in bonds were successfully sold in three different offerings. Vermont has maintained the highest overall bond rating of all New England states – two triple-A ratings and one double-A plus rating – since early 2010.“Bond buyers recognize Vermont bonds as a solid, quality investment,” said Pearce. “A bond rating is an independent assessment of the creditworthiness of a borrowing instrument like a bond. A higher rating leads to a more favorable effect on the marketing of a bond and leads to reduced interest rates and debt service for the entity selling the bond. Vermont has had the highest bond rating in New England for almost five years, a favorable position that has allowed the State to reduce its borrowing costs for funding a wide range of capital projects.”The bonds settle, or close, on December 9, 2014. Yields ranged from 0.12 percent for bonds maturing in one year to 2.87 percent for bonds maturing in 20 years. The average maturity for the bonds was 9.1 years. A bond is said to mature on the date when the final debt and interest payment is paid in full. The State received an overall borrowing cost of 2.69 percent.The Series A Vermont Citizen Bonds were offered on Monday, with a first priority given to Vermont residents and businesses. The $20.3 million in bonds were sold by the afternoon. The bonds were sold on a negotiated basis with Morgan Stanley as the senior manager, with Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Citi, and J.P. Morgan serving as co-managers, and seven more firms participating in the selling group.The State also sold $53.2 million of Series B bonds and $36.2 million of Series C refunding bonds on November 19 using two competitive internet-based sales. The State received bids from eight different banks for the Series B bonds, with the winning bid coming from Wells Fargo. The Series C bonds received 10 bids, with Morgan Stanley as the winner.“The bond sale provides the funding for capital projects that include major maintenance to state buildings, school construction and individual projects such as the new Vermont State Hospital in Berlin,” explained Pearce.The Series A and B bonds will be used to finance approved capital projects. The Series C bonds will be used to refinance existing bonds sold in 2005 and 2007 and will save the State almost $3.5 million in interest costs over the next 13 years.Vermont bonds are rated triple-A by Moody’s Investor Service and Fitch Ratings, the highest rating available to government issuers. Vermont bonds also are rated AA+ by Standard & Poor’s Ratings Service.last_img read more

(NASDAQ: PBCT) today reported net income of $62.9 million, or $0.21 per share, for the first quarter of 2016, compared to $59.2 million, or $0.20 per share, for the first quarter of 2015, and $70.8 million, or $0.23 per share, for the fourth quarter of 2015. Included in the results for the fourth quarter of 2015 was a net after-tax gain of $6.1 million ($0.02 per share) resulting from the sale of the company’s payroll services business.The Company’s Board of Directors voted to increase the common stock dividend to an annual rate of $0.68 per share.  Based on the closing stock price on April 20, 2016, the dividend yield on People’s United Financial common stock is 4.1 percent. The quarterly dividend of $0.17 per share is payable May 15, 2016 to shareholders of record on May 1, 2016.”Our performance this quarter reflects our continued focus on further improving profitability, while moving the company forward with a long-term view,” commented Jack Barnes, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Net income increased six percent from a year ago, driven by solid net interest income growth and effective expense management. In what is typically a seasonally slower quarter for loan growth, total period-end loans grew one percent annualized. Residential mortgage results remained strong with growth of 11 percent annualized, while commercial loan balances were slightly lower from year-end. However, on a quarterly average basis, commercial loans grew more than four percent annualized. We also experienced annualized organic deposit growth of 11 percent in the quarter, driven by our continued emphasis on franchise-wide cross-sell and deposit gathering efforts.”Barnes continued, “We remain committed to making investments that create value for both customers and shareholders. As such, we are pleased to announce today the acquisition of Eagle Insurance Group, a full-service agency and customer-focused commercial insurance broker based in eastern Massachusetts. The acquisition deepens the Company’s presence in the region as well as expands our already strong relationships and expertise in commercial lines.”Barnes concluded, “Finally, we are also pleased to announce our 23rd consecutive annual dividend increase, which demonstrates our commitment to deliver shareholder value through the consistent return of capital.””Ongoing efforts to improve operating leverage through revenue growth and proactively managing costs were evident in the quarter,” stated David Rosato, Senior Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. “Revenues grew two percent from the prior year quarter due to higher net interest income, while total expenses were better than the first quarter expectations we set forth at year-end. Net interest income continued to benefit from loan growth as well as our decision to increase the securities portfolio in recent periods due to the prolonged low interest rate environment.
