Please register and attend the workshop closest to you. Read below for more information.
State seeks input on Vermont's Energy Future - Only Vermonters may register and vote. Vermont wants your help in shaping the future mix of electricity sources for the state.
Five evening public workshops will be held in locations throughout the state this fall. You can attend the workshop closest to you. These workshops were authorized by the Vermont Legislature, endorsed by the Governor, and spearheaded by the Department of Public Service.
The Workshops are free but REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED.
The goal of the workshops is to gather informed and thoughtful citizen and ratepayer input for the State and its electric utilities as they make decisions about how and where Vermont obtains its electric power for the coming decades.
In 2012, contracts providing for two-thirds of the state's electric power begin to expire. This leaves the future source of Vermont's electricity open for discussion and examination.
Choices about the future will have to be made and will weigh trade-offs among cost, reliability, environmental impact, large and small scale generation, andin versus out-of-state sources
During the workshops there will be a brief presentation, small group facilitated discussions, a chance to ask questions to a panel of experts, keypad polling to register your preferences and opinions, and an open mike atthe end to record any additional thoughts you might have.
To ensure broad and diverse participation from across the state, participants may only register for one workshop. Please click on the link to register for one workshop. Only 150 people per workshop may vote.
This workshop is very important to attend and register to vote. We need to make sure that there are a number of people present who are informed about Vermont Yankee and want to help shape the energy future of Vermont!!
New England Coalition (NEC) has advocated for safe energy alternatives to nuclear power since 1971. In service of that mission we utilize email correspondence from time to time.
