Today, at 12:00 pm, on VPR's Vermont Edition:
How The Public Service Board Works
When an energy project or a transmission line is proposed in Vermont, it's
the Public Service Board that decides whether the project can go forward.
The board is a quasi-judicial body, and critics say that process doesn't give
the public enough say when energy generation projects are being considered.
Now, a commission is looking at how Vermont reviews electric generation
projects to determine if improvements can be made to the process. Our
guests are Jim Volz, chair of the Public Service Board, Jan Eastman, who leads
the Energy Generation Siting Policy Commission, and Geoff Commons, the
public advocate at the Department of Public Service.
