Trial proposed for Vermont wind power property dispute 

In 2011, Green Mountain Power took project opponents to court Don and Shirley Nelson of Lowell to stop them from interfering with blasting of the crane path and turbine sites on the mountain. The Nelsons and GMP presented dueling surveys and experts that disputed the property boundary of land GMP has under a long-term lease for the wind project. The Nelsons want a trial to find that GMP and other companies have trespassed on Nelson property.
