DERBY, VT â€“ Vermont Electric Power Company (VELCO), located in Rutland, VT, is apparently attempting to establish a beachhead in Derby, and quickly. This comes on the heels of bidding war between two Canadian companies, Gaz Metro, which already owns Green Mountain Power, and Fortis to purchase CVPS.
COLCHESTER, VT â€“ Ken Wells, publisher of the Newport Daily Express, was on the tarmmac when America's First Lady, Michelle Obama, arrived in Vermont. His report of this historic event will follow soon in the Newport Daily Express.
DERBY â€“ Vermont companies are proposing to build large, single wind turbines on two or three farms in Derby Line.
For about two years, Bryan Davis of Grand View Farms was looking into attaining a large turbine on his farm. Currently he has a small turbine of about 100 feet, but the turbine does not generate enough power to completely run his farm.
Now Alteris Renewables and Encore Redevelopment have joined in on the idea. The land for the turbines would be leased from the farmers. The turbines would be made by Northern Power Systems, a Vermont company based in Barre.
