Vermont Lawmakers To Hear Energy Siting Report

Sep 25, 2013

Two Vermont legislative committees are set to review the state's policies for siting new energy projects.

The Senate and House Natural Resources and Energy committees have scheduled a joint session today to hear from a specially created energy siting commission.

That panel has been studying how Vermont reviews and approves projects like wind turbines, biomass-fired power plants and similar projects.

Gov. Peter Shumlin pushed for creation of the panel following criticisms of state decisions on permitting the Kingdom Community Wind project and similar developments.
