Noise Expert To Testify On Lowell Wind Project

02/10/11 6:06AM

A noise expert will testify today about the sounds created by wind turbines at a Vermont Public Service Board hearing on the proposed Kingdom Community Wind project in Lowell.

Robert McCunney has been retained by project developers Green Mountain Power and Vermont Electric Co-Op. He'll testify today in Montpelier.

State utility regulators are weighing plans for a 20-turbine wind project that was approved by Lowell voters last year but is now being challenged by a group of opponents.

The $150 million project needs a certificate of public good from the state in order to begin construction.
