Yesterday there was a status conference at the Public Service Board on the Certificate of Public Good for Vermont Yankee, based on the deal made between the state and Entergy. There will be a statewide Public Hearing on January 14 via interactive tv. The last time public hearings were held was November 2012: nine months before Entergy announced Vermont Yankee was to close and a year before this deal. We sponsored a workshop to inform citizens on the issues, and the turn out to all the hearings was overwhelming.
We need to turn out in force again, folks!
Here is the PSB announcement; locations are in the Notice at the end. “An additional public hearing related to the MOU will be held on Tuesday, January 14, 2014, at 7 P.M., using the facilities of Vermont Interactive Technologies in Bennington, Brattleboro, Johnson, Lyndonville, Middlebury, Montpelier, Newport, Randolph Center, Rutland, Springfield, St. Albans, White River Junction and Williston, Vermont. Public Hearing Notice.” [Download] PSB weblink
