Energy plan public hearings announced

After more than 6 months of anticipation and hard work put forth by Vermonters all across the state, the Shumlin Administration’s comprehensive energy plan was released last week.  Parts of the plan are visionary but we need action, not just vision.

The Department of Public Service is holding five public hearings around the state, asking for comments on the energy plan.  We hope you’ll be able to attend one of the hearings to let the Department staff know how you think the plan can be improved.  If you haven’t gotten a chance to yet, you can also submit comments here, using our online tool.  We’re calling on the Governor to have the state get 80% of our electricity from renewable sources by 2025, which would set Vermont on a path to achieve his ambitious vision..

Here’s the schedule of upcoming hearings:

September 27th (7-9 p.m.) – Middlebury High School (73 Charles Avenue)
September 28th  (7-9 p.m.) – Brattleboro High School (131 Fairground Road)
September 29th (7-9 p.m.) – Rutland High School (22 Stratton Road)
October 3rd (7-9 p.m.) – Colchester High School (131 Laker Lane)
