WINDHAM — A company that wants to set up three wind-testing towers in Vermont says the state’s opposition relies on “unpersuasive and troubling” logic.
Atlantic Wind requested a certificate of public good from the Department of Public Service to erect three meteorological testing towers — two in Windham and one in Grafton. The towers could be the precursor to Windham County’s first commercial wind turbine site.
The department said the construction was contrary to local regulations.
The Brattleboro Reformer reports Atlantic Wind said the department’s recent decision could impede development of energy across Vermont by giving towns too much authority in the permitting process.
Windham’s town plan bans commercial wind turbines.
