  1. Vermont takes second look at renewable energy policy

    MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) — Regulators in Vermont appear to be applying the brakes to the state's renewable energy boom. Replying to a proposed rule issued by the Public Service Board earlier this month, renewable energy advocates say it will bar the state from reaching its goal of getting 90 percent of its energy from renewable sources by 2050. The board's order concerns net metering . That's the system under which owners of solar power systems can sell the extra power they make to utilities, offsetting their electric bills. The new rules limit the size of such projects and reduce the amount of power utilities are expected to take from them. Supporters say the board is trying to strike a balance between supporting renewables but not imposing new costs on customers who haven't gone solar.
