The Vermont Department of Public Service is asking the state’s largest utility to pay toward continuous noise-level monitoring of its 21 wind turbines in Lowell. The department wants Green Mountain Power, which owns and operates the wind power project, to pay toward the project through a $54,000 penalty for six violations of sound standards last winter. The utility opposes continuous monitoring, saying it reacted quickly when noise problems were identified. The Caledonian Record reported that Geoffrey Commons, the department’s director for public advocacy, said the department continues to believe identification and correction of noise-related problems is of paramount concern.
