Wind Study

The NVDA Wind Study Committee was formed in response to the NVDA Board of Directors July 2012 adoption of a resolution recommending a suspension of industrial-scale (height of 200 ft. or greater) wind turbines for a 3-year period for further study. At the March 26, 2015 meeting of the full Board of Directors, members unanimously approved the committee's recommendation that "no further development of industrial-scale wind turbines should take place in the Northeast Kingdom.This position will become an element in the NVDA regional energy plan. The position may be revised for future plans if our understanding of turbine impacts changes significantly." (The final Wind Study Report is available below)
