Vermont working group to study state utility regulation

Vermont (39.5 out of 50)

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) — A newly created working group to study the way Vermont regulates energy industries is set to hold its first session.

The first meeting is scheduled for Friday in Montpelier.

Legislation passed this year called for the group to look at ways to improve citizen participation in matters before the Public Service Board, which regulates power and other utilities.

The move comes after critics of Vermont's siting process for wind and solar power projects have complained that many citizens feel shut out of a process that they see as dominated by lawyers.

The five-member group appears to be a bit late getting started. The law called for its first meeting to be on or before July 1.
