Rep. Welch To Move Burlington Office

Sep 25, 2013

Vermont's lone member of the U.S. House of Representatives is moving his Burlington office.

The office of Congressman Peter Welch will move from downtown to the city's South End in the building built in 1894 as the Queen City Cotton Mill.

That’s the former home of General Dynamics and the current home of Efficiency Vermont, Vermont's energy efficiency utility.

The building harnesses geothermal energy for cooling and has an overall 99 percent Energy Star rating.

Welch calls the Innovation Center a model of energy efficiency and a flagship for some of the latest efficiency technology.
