Opponents of the 21-turbine wind power project planned for northern Vermont’s Lowell Mountain have begun an occupation designed to halt blasting for the project.

They say they’ve set up four tents at the invitation of neighboring property owners Don and Shirley Nelson of Albany, who have written to project developer Green Mountain Power’s CEO asking the company to ensure the campers’ safety.

GMP spokeswoman Dottie Schnure says the company will want to clear the area were the campers are when blasting crews approach, most likely in late fall or early winter. As to what might happen if they’re still there, she said the company would address that question when the time comes.

The project is expected to be completed by the end of 2012.
