A recent Order issued by the Vermont Public Service Board denied a Certificate of Public Good for a 2MW solar electric facility in Bennington, VT. TRORC Senior Planner, Chris Sargent ([email protected]) has drafted a white paper analyzing the planning implications for municipal planners that are considering how to treat renewable energy generation facilities in their communities (available for download below). This denial is an unprecedented action in the history of the certificate of public good process.
