Vermont Wind Moratorium

Two Vermont state senators are calling for a three-year moratorium on large-scale wind power projects in the state, and for giving energy projects more thorough environmental review.

The developer of what could be Vermont's largest wind project says a proposed moratorium would stifle investment in renewable energy.

Seneca Mountain Wind wants to build a 40-turbine project straddling three towns in a remote region of the state.  Manager Jack Kenworthy says a moratorium could send the wrong message to investors.
