MONTPELIER — A developer considering a wind power project in a remote area of Vermont’s Essex County says it will drop its plans in any community that votes against the project — after it has a chance to present its proposal.
Jack Kenworthy of New Hampshire-based Seneca Mountain Wind says Seneca will honor the vote if it happens after the company has made a detailed presentation of its plans for the town.
Kenworthy tells the Burlington Free Press Seneca has leased hilltops that could accommodate up to 35 turbines. It currently is seeking state approval to set up wind-measuring towers.
Communities under consideration are Newark, Ferdinand and Island Pond. Some residents have supported the wind farm, others are petitioning against it.
