RUTLAND, Vt. (AP) -- Vermont's largest power company and four colleges have signed an agreement to collaborate on energy innovation projects.

Four schools in Rutland County — Castleton State, the College of St. Joseph, Community College of Vermont and Green Mountain College — say they hope the deal will benefit them and the region's economy.

The program will be centered at Green Mountain Power's Energy Innovation Center in Rutland.

It will include lectures at the center by professors from the colleges, talks and demonstrations by energy center staff at the colleges, internships, job shadowing and other aspects.
