Vermont state renewable energy plan in the works

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) — Vermont's Public Service Department is preparing an update of the state's comprehensive energy plan, and among the areas getting attention are the solar boom and changes in the transportation sector.

Department Commissioner Chris Recchia says Vermont's move toward using more distributed energy sources — wind, solar and other renewable sources — will be addressed in the draft plan out later this summer.

State officials began meeting in late June with stakeholders including utilities, environmental groups, renewable energy advocates and others in an effort to determine what issues need to be addressed in the plan.

The department is accepting written comments through July 24, which is a week from Friday.

A final version of the plan is due out by Jan. 1.
