Pleased with Yankee’s decommissioning plans

Tuesday, March 13, 2018

The State of Vermont’s agreement to NorthStar’s proposed plan to decommission Vermont Yankee decades ahead of schedule is a green light for Vernon and Windham County’s financial future. The fact that almost all intervenors and involved parties were able to make an agreement after lengthy, inclusive negotiations is a beacon of hope for the rest of our country.

I implore the Vermont Public Utility Commission to recognize the once-in-a-lifetime benefits to my town, Vernon. A safe, swift, environmentally sound decommissioning as early as eight years from now will be the foundation of Vernon’s development in the 21st century. Bring it on!
