Vermont Renewable Energy Bill Becomes Law
Signed on Friday, June 4, the 2010 Renewable Energy Bill (H. 781) further encourages development of renewable energy in Vermont. Most provisions became law upon signature. It is a critical follow-up to Vermont’s 2009 Energy Act, enacted to support rapid deployment of renewable energy generation projects in Vermont through the establishment of long-term power contracts with fixed prices. More details to follow, but the full text of the new law is available here: http://www.leg.state.vt.us/docs/2010/bills/Passed/H-781.pdf.
