Wind energy commission releases draft recommendations

The state can use existing utility law and doesn’t need Act 250 to review wind power projects, but the review process should allow more public participation. Those are the key recommendations in a draft report of the Commission on Wind Energy Regulatory Policy.

The panel was appointed by Governor Jim Douglas to respond to the use of wind turbines as a source of electricity in Vermont. The commission says the same law used to review other utility projects can be used for wind power.
