Public Debate on Glebe Mountain Wind Project in Vermont

The Rutland Herald has this report on Wednesday night's debate over Catamount Energy's proposal to place 27 wind turbines on Glebe Mountain in Londonderry and Windham, Vermont. According to the report "Sam Lloyd of Weston, co-chairman of the Glebe Mountain Group, which opposes the proposed wind facility on Glebe Mountain in Londonderry and Windham, matched facts and opinions with John Berkowitz of Southern Vermonters for a Fair Economy and Environmental Protection, a supporter of wind energy development."

Among other issues, the debators exhanged views on the costs and benefits of the project, the nature of the permiting process, and the importance of wind power as a part of Vermont's energy future.
