Noise Expert To Testify On Lowell Wind Project
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.
