Regulator rethinking gas pipeline

Posted on June 25, 2015 |
By Erin Mansfield Vt Digger



MONTPELIER — Opponents of Vermont Gas Systems natural gas pipeline said Tuesday that the expensive project is no longer necessary because technological advances have obviated the need for the product.

The comments came as the Vermont Public Service Board on Monday and Tuesday held technical hearings on whether to revoke the permit it granted to Vermont Gas for a 41-mile natural gas pipeline from Colchester to Middlebury. The hearings were called to reconsider the Phase 1 permits due to significant cost increases.

By Addison Independent



MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury’s annual Peasant Market will take place this year on Saturday, July 11, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the Middlebury town green.

The market took on its current name in the 1940s, and has been a local tradition ever since. All proceeds are donated to area nonprofits and service organizations. Last year’s market raised roughly $23,000.

ADDISON COUNTY — As the Vermont Public Service Board considers a permit for a proposed $1.2 billion electricity transmission line through Lake Champlain, local community planners are asking that the regulator not stop Addison County’s lakefront towns from taxing the underwater line.

If the permit does forestall such taxation, it could mean that Addison, Bridport, Shoreham and Orwell would miss out on up to $7 million in tax revenue, according to the Addison County Regional Planning Commission.
