Vermont board says border wind can seek new project  

Credit:  AP | www.wcax.com 21 June 2012 ~~

Vermont utility regulators say a wind power developer can re-apply for a permit to build an industrial scale wind turbine on a hilltop not far from the Canadian border in Derby Line.

Last month Encore Redevelopment of Burlington withdrew an application to build two turbines along the border after a public outcry by neighbors in the United States and Canada.

Encore’s Chad Farrell says his company will not seek to erect a turbine on Smugglers Hill about 1,000 feet from the Canadian border.

The Caledonian Record says Farrell is seeking to have state officials extend a standard contract for a turbine on the Grand View Farm turbine, which guarantees that utilities would have to pay a preferential rate for any electricity produced by that turbine.
