NEW HAVEN — The Public Service Board on Tuesday will hear from both the town of New Haven and Green Mountain Power, as to whether local power distribution lines are adequate to handle a 350 kW solar array proposed to be built next to the Vermont State Police barracks in New Haven.

The proposed solar array, called SSE New Haven Solar II, would be built next to a 150 kW solar array already in operation in the same location. The developer applied for permission to build the new array in March 2015.

Posted on January 7, 2016 |
By Andy Kirkaldy

That is, it could see the rate increase unless the Legislature acts to remove or delay the Act 46 spending penalty.

This coming Monday, the board will look again at a budget that could call for cuts. The meeting will be at 6 p.m. at VUHS.

Mild weather allows town crews to catch up, but savings unclear

Posted on January 4, 2016 |
By JULIA JOHN



lorenwood in Dec. 2009.jpg

ADDISON COUNTY — A Christmas Eve almost as warm as the night of the Fourth of July, the temperatures even higher in some parts of Vermont than those in the subtropics. Streets, rooftops, branches, fields and hills barren and snowless until the last few days of December.
