MONTPELIER — The Vermont General Assembly will meet on Thursday, June 9, to address Gov. Peter Shumlin’s recent veto of S.230, also known as the solar siting bill.
Shumlin vetoed the bill on Monday. The law was designed to give greater say in the siting of solar projects to communities that draft energy plans that are compatible with the state’s renewable energy goals. Some town officials have expressed frustration at the current system, which gives the three-member Vermont Public Service Board broad powers in the permitting of renewable energy projects.
