Rep. Margaret Cheney named to Public Service Board

Gov. Peter Shumlin announced Monday that Rep. Margaret Cheney, D-Norwich, will assume David Coen’s position on the three-member Public Service Board.

Cheney will take her seat on Oct. 1 with the quasi-judicial board, responsible for regulating Vermont utility and telecom issues. Board members serve six-year stints, and Coen’s tenure officially ended in February of this year. Former Gov. Howard Dean appointed Coen, and he has remained on until Shumlin appointed a replacement.

Cheney, who is married to Vermont’s U.S. Rep. Peter Welch, is resigning from the Legislature and, consequently, as vice chair of the House Energy Committee.

“Margaret brings a critical combination of expertise in policy and public engagement,” Shumlin said in a statement. “Her track record as a former journalist, school board chair, teacher, legislator, and vice-chair of a key energy committee is impressive. Her commitment to civic involvement and her familiarity with Vermont energy policy make her a perfect addition to the Board.”

Cheney has been a leader in the Green Mountain State for renewable energy reforms and programs that make more efficient use of resources.

House Speaker Shap Smith said she would be missed in the Legislature.

“Margaret has been incredibly important to that (energy) committee, working with representative Klein and others on the committee to flesh out and understand how Vermont can move towards an energy future that is less reliant on carbon,” he said. “Margaret will be a great fit for the Public Service Board. She is really well versed in energy and land-use policy and is reasonable and fair-minded and will be a great person to have on the board.”

Cheney will earn a salary of $86,000 a year.

An excellent appointment. Cheney is an excellent listener and clear thinker on the challenging interrelationship between of energy supply, energy costs, and environmental consequences of our energy decisions.

Paul, you are very wrong in your appreciation of Cheney. She opposes any participation of communities and towns in the siting and placement of energy generation. She doesn’t listen to anyone who opposes the corporate interests that have funded the careers of her, her husband or the governor with whom she shares party affiliation. She proposed a bill to have storm water permit appeals go before the PSB rather than the environmental court because local opposition to the First Wind turbine project in Sheffield held up the project for two years in environmental court. Cheney has made her stance against… Read more »

Kathy, I think that you overlooked that Governor Shumlin created the energy generation siting commission that specifies public input and participation in the siting process. And that is in addition to all of the public hearings that the opposition turns into something that resembles a Bread & Puppet show. And why wouldn’t the governor appoint someone who shares his philosophy on renewables? He’s not going to appoint Senator Joe Benning. In conclusion, Margaret Cheneys appointment is certainly a win for renewable energy advocates, but probably to the detriment to the opposition.
Cheers

Not to mention a loss for taxpayers who foot the bill for unrealistic solar and wind projects and for those of us who would rather see green pastures and Vermont’s beautiful mountains not chopped off.
I wonder if she supports the proposed biomass plant in North Springfield that will be 30% efficient and create huge amounts of unnecessary pollution. I wonder how many solar collectors it takes to offset the damage from this one plant.
Anyone know the answer to that?

A Bread and Puppet approach is exactly what’s needed for the Public Service Board. They are such techno-zombies even now that it would be but a small step just go ahead and wear puppet masks. Participants could then be clear that with the PSB, we are not dealing with a democratic process but with a demonic world of suggestion, dark metaphor, pregnant silences…

Paul, It is proper to look at part of her track record in the legislature. She is an originator/promoter of the RE SPEED program and Lowell-type ridge line wind turbine plants. Both programs are financial fiascos, which I, by email, informed her committee members would happen more than 3 years ago, based on performance of nearby ridge line wind turbine plants in Maine. Their build-outs will become a major burden on Vermont’s economy. Stupidly using other people’s money to actualize political agendas in the name of “fighting GW, doing something about GW” is in vogue in Montpelier. 1) Vermont’s RE… Read more »

The only good side is that the people of Windsor County now have the opportunity to correct the mistakes they made when they voted Cheney into office. Maybe this time they can find someone who actually cares about the people of VT and doesn’t use the position to cater to the big corps in Canada, China and Europe.

While she is certainly qualified, Ms. Cheney has accepted campaign contributions from major corporate players in Vermont’s energy industry (http://www.followthemoney.org/database/StateGlance/candidate.phtml?c=142351)

As a quasi-judicial board, the PSB makes legal decisions makes on behalf of all Vermonters.

The appearance of impartiality is a high standard that Ms Cheney must meet given her political background. I’d be interested to hear her discuss how she plans to separate her new public service position from her political career.

I am very disappointed to see the snarky comments from Keith Stern and Peter Yankowski. Clearly, they do not know Margaret Cheney!

Warren, you’re a good man and I highly respect the job you have done on the House Commerce Committee over the years, but I’ll have to differ with you in this case. Rep. Cheney, as it states in Andrew’s twitter piece and is otherwise well known, is a leader for renewable energy reform and in this state that means charging full speed ahead to achieve 90% renewables at apparently any economic or environmental cost. While sitting on the House Natural Resources Committee, she sat by silently when Tony Klein callously pronounced he didn’t need to hear from the neighbors of… Read more »

Interesting question, Peter. Some people might respond by looking for those flying pigs. (I did apply for the position once, years ago. Some people asked me about it this year and I know when not to waste my time). I will offer one recent observation about Rep. Cheney. She attended the PSB’s August hearing on GMP’s violations of the noise standard for the Lowell wind project. I thought, “good for her, a legislator is actually showing interest in what happens at the Board.” Then I watched as she sat with GMP’s people, and waved and smiled to GMP’s general counsel,… Read more »

I was hoping Rep. Cheney would be more inquisitive during my testimony regarding smart meters to the House Energy Committee in March, considering we are practically neighbors and the bulk of my research on the issue took place in her hometown. In this video you can hear her speak about her trip to Germany to learn about their aggressive energy plan (still not as ambitious as Vermont’s). It’s too bad Vermont did not reject smart meters as Germany has based on their very unlikely return on investment (disregarding the health/environmental impacts). http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2013-08-01/germany-rejects-eu-smart-meter-recommendations-on-cost-concerns.html From 5 years ago: http://publicservice.vermont.gov/sites/psd/files/Topics/Electric/Smart_Grid/Docket_7307/VermontReportFinal%5B1%5D.doc “[T]he operational net… Read more »

They’re sending somebody every month to walk up and read the “smart” meter that they gave me, since it’s in a location where it can’t talk to the “mother ship”. I could predict the lack of reception, but not their dumb decision to put a smart meter there anyway.

Thank you Frank for, er, being frank. Well said. We have a lot of rules that seem to support renewable energy but only when it enriches the rich. For example, the “net metering” rules which discourage conservation (since one is never paid for excess energy production) – unless one is politically connected enough to bureaucratically link the production to unrelated consumption.

Bob, the issue here isn’t whether or not Rep. Cheney is smart, nice or courteous. I’m sure she possesses all of these qualities and more.

The issue is placing someone on the PSB, which is supposed to be an impartial body, who has a record of pushing renewable energy initiatives at every opportunity offered. This is about the Governor creating a situation, which at best raises perception issues and at worse, well lets hope the future PSB votes don’t make the perception reality.

Bob Stannard

The issue here is, Peter , that you don’t like Gov. Shumlin. For you, and others, to insinuate that Margaret Cheney will not be an objective member of the PSB is inaccurate and unfair.

You probably won’t agree with her, but remember many of us lived through George Bush & Jim Douglas’ administrations. What you’re complaining about is the results of an election. You should be grateful that Gov. Shumlin is appointing a person who is thoughtful and will be objective.

Bob, The fact is that Ms. Cheney has taken political donations from corporate energy players in Vermont. That is an alarming potential conflict of interest, especially when we are discussing an appointment to a quasi-judicial board that will have the final say on energy projects in Vermont.

You’re going to be hard pressed to find anyone in the legislature who has not accepted corporate donations from somebody.

Remember, she’s leaving the legislature so it no longer matters. Frankly, I don’t know of many reps or Sen. who accept enough money from anyone to be beholden to a donor. Vermont’s a small place and it’s good that we keep it that way.

Shumlin’s stacking the deck here. Period.

Renewables need to be looked at with critical thought. Just because it bears the ‘renewables’ label does not make it an auomatic wise choice for Vermont. Critical points with regard to renewables done smartly, done right, done with justice to Vermont , to its people, and to climate/environmental issues include these: scale, siting, setbacks, safety, scope and purpose (truthful purpose!).

Act 248 and the Public Service Board are governmental constructs adopted more or less globally for one reason: to ensure that “Public Good” trumps “Private Gain”. THere is nothing wrong with this in concept, But to Margaret Cheney I have this to say: There is often not very much to comfort the observer that the Public Good is accurately measured by the PSB. Recent hearings have convinced me that the PSB allows corporations to hide behind a veil of “proprietary information” that which the public has a right to know.

My point about Lowell Mtn electrical output is to remind the PSB that stated projections about production (the basis of evaluating Public Good) do not guarantee actual production.

Will the projects before the Board now suffer the same failure to produce (Tony Kleins famous “bump in the road”)that has plagued KCW?

If so, the the Public Good side of the argument is diminished accordingly. In Lowell, a failure to ask the right questions cost a great deal of Public Good.

Bob, Investors have decided that winds west of Chicago are much better than on ridge lines in New England. As a result, 90% of all US wind energy is generated west of Chicago. The reasons are: few people, low capital costs, low operating and maintenance costs, AND VERY GOOD WINDS that produce CF of 0.38 or better. This is definitely not the case in New England, which has high capital costs, high O&M costs, and fair-to-middling winds that produce, on average, CFs of about 0.25 or less.
