Newark Wind

Residents in the Vermont town of Newark are asking Governor Peter Shumlin to appeal a state ruling that would allow a developer to erect test towers to monitor wind speeds in the area.

Some Newark, Vermont officials are upset with a decision by the Vermont Public Service Board that it will not consider the town's ban on wind projects when considering a developer's request to erect test towers to monitor wind speeds in the area.

In another decision last week that upset some town officials, the board refused to dismiss the application to erect the test towers filed by Seneca Mountain Wind.
