How Much Of A Voice Will Towns Have In Renewable Projects?

Toby Talbot
With solar and wind playing a major role in Vermont's energy plan, lawmakers are trying to figure out who gets to weigh in on where renewable projects go.

As Vermont embraces the idea of renewable energy like wind and solar, the inevitable impact on the local landscape and community is inescapable. The question then becomes, how can towns weigh in on where these projects go?

Sen. Chris Bray, chair of the Senate Natural Resources and Energy Committee and Rep. Tony Klein, chair of the House Natural Resources and Energy Committee are trying to find the answer. Bray and Klein join us on the next Vermont Edition.

Also in the program, ROTC's roots at Norwich University. ROTC celebrates its centennial anniversary this week, and Norwich University will be host to high-ranking officers from all branches of service who are arriving in Northfield to honor the school's role in founding the ROTC. VPR's Patti Daniels talks with ROTC students and with Norwich President Richard Scheider about the unique experience of being a Norwich cadet.
