Public Service Board Public Hearing
April 6, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
The Public Service Board (PSB) has scheduled a public hearing on the sale of Vermont Yankee by Entergy to NorthStar Group Services LLC. Entergy and NorthStar are asking the PSB to grant a Certificate of Public Good for the sale by the fall of 2018.
The PSB will hold a second public hearing later in the process, after the parties have submitted evidence. It is unusual for the PSB to have two hearings. Also unusual are the number of parties who want to be part of the docket. Parties include Entergy, NorthStar, Dept. of Public Service, New England Coalition, and Windham Regional Commission. Awaiting permission to become parties are the state Attorney General, Agency of Natural Resources, International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (union), Associated Industries of Vermont, the Town of Vernon, and Conservation Law Foundation.
An informational presentation by the Dept. of Public Service will be held at 6:00pm. The hearing will begin at 7:00pm. The hearing will be at Vernon Elementary School, on Governor Hunt Road across the street from Vermont Yankee, in Vernon, VT.
This is a Public Service Board hearing on its Docket 8880. To follow the process go to: http://epsb.vermont.gov/?q= node/64/27332/FV-Case% 20Summary-Portal.
