Vermont utilities rely on Hydro Quebec and Vermont Yankee for
two-thirds of their power. But contracts for that electricity begin to expire
in four years. Energy
experts say replacing those contracts will force the state to consider some big
changes in its mix of power supplies.

will be able to meet a sizeable portion of its future energy needs by
renegotiating its power contracts with Hydro Quebec. That’s the word from the head of the Central Vermont
Public Corporation – the state’s largest utility.
