LOWELL, Vt. – Protesters are trying to block wind tower parts from arriving in Lowell – and some are being arrested.
Green Mountain Power is in the process of putting up 21 turbines on 400 foot towers. Critics say the project will destroy views of the rural region and lower property values.
About 150 people showed up to protest Monday morning and many are blocking Route 100 – shutting down traffic. In the past half hour, authorities began making arrests.
