A spokeswoman for Vermont’s largest electric utility said it is disappointed by the $30,000 fine imposed by utility regulators for violating a state permit while delivering turbine parts to the Lowell Mountain wind project. Green Mountain Power spokeswoman Dorothy Schnure said it was an administrative error that communities were not notified of the five turbine shipments along the northern Vermont route last summer. She said the shipments went smoothly and caused no damage. The utility reached a settlement with the Public Service Department that included a $7,500 fine, but the Public Service Board imposed the larger fine.
