Power And The People: Citizen’s Role In Energy Projects

Power And The People: Citizen’s Role In Energy Projects

When an energy project like wind turbines or large-scale solar arrays are proposed to be built, affected landowners find they need to get a deep education on regulatory processes, and fast.  On the next Vermont Edition, we look at the quasi-judicial process for reviewing and approving those projects from the citizen’s perspective. Our guest is Annette Smith of Vermonters for a Clean Environment, who says there ought to be a less complicated, less litigious and less expensive way for people to play a role in deciding where energy projects are located.

Also in the program, the problem of “youth flight” and new study that looks at why people leave Vermont, and how they feel about the state when they’re gone. UVM geography professor Cheryl Morse shares the initial results of the Vermont Roots Migration Study that she co-leads.

Broadcast live on Tues., April 28 at 12 noon; rebroadcast at 7 p.m.
