The Public Service Board has offered to ditch a requirement that turbines be a certain distance from homes. The board suggested it would defer to concerns raised by lawmakers and others.
Since he was elected, Gov. Scott’s actions on climate have indicated anything but a willingness to lead.
The long-running debate over sound from wind turbines got a hearing Thursday before a legislative committee reviewing changes to sound limits sought by the Public Service Board.

We can’t get to broad use of green energy unless wind is part of the mix.
A decision affecting the future of wind power in Vermont needs to compare the impacts of wind with those of other forms of energy production.
Setting the lowest wind power sound limit in the nation and an arbitrary setback distance is going to make it nearly impossible to site a wind project in Vermont.
Some say tougher standards are necessary to protect health and even lives, while wind supporters say the concerns are unfounded and the proposed limits would kill the industry.
The Vermont Public Service Board should establish standards that reflect the promises that wind developers have made.
The Public Service Board rule is unsupported by the clear weight of scientific evidence on acoustic engineering and public health.
National Grid says it would use an existing transmission corridor, although expanded right of way access is needed at the northern end. The line would carry hydro- and wind-generated power.
The new company will crunch data from customers’ electric meters to help forecast conditions on the grid, which is predicted to save Vermonters money.
Europe and the U.S. have been building onshore wind turbine plants in rural areas for more than 25 years.
Developers of a proposed seven-turbine wind project in Swanton will respond in person to questions from the public at a workshop Jan. 3, according to a Public Service Board order. The workshop is not meant to give the developers — Travis and Ashley Belisle, of St. Albans — an opportunity to advocate for the project, […]
