MONTPELIER, Vt. – Opponents of a wind power project in the Northeast Kingdom have won a temporary reprieve.
Seneca Mountain Wind is exploring the possibility of a wind farm in a remote area of Essex County. The company has applied for permits to erect wind measurement towers in Brighton, Newark and Ferdinand. Some neighboring landowners appealed, saying Seneca failed to notify them about the plans as required by law.
A Public Service Board hearing officer has sided with the neighbors and placed the project on hold until Seneca makes proper notifications.
