Proposed wind moratorium debated

The developer of what could be Vermont’s largest wind project to date says a proposed moratorium would stifle investment in renewable energy. Seneca Mountain Wind wants to build a 40-turbine project straddling three towns in a remote region of the state. Its manager, Jack Kenworthy, says a moratorium could send the wrong message to investors. Wind opponents, led by Caledonia state Senator Joe Benning, want a three-year moratorium on wind projects built on Vermont’s ridgelines. Benning, a Republican, said that the Northeast Kingdom is being targeted by wind developers and that a timeout is needed to study impacts of the projects. Benning told Vermont Public Radio the wind moratorium has bipartisan support in the Senate, but it’s likely to face strong opposition in the House. (AP)
