Editor’s note: This commentary is by Democratic Sen. John S. Rodgers of Glover, who represents the Essex/Orleans District in the Vermont Senate.

On Nov. 11 at 6 p.m. the UTG (Unified Towns and Gores) Board of Governors will meet at the Brighton Town Hall to discuss the Seneca Mountain Wind proposal from Eolian Renewable Energy LLC.

On a postcard that was sent out by Eolian to the about 500 voters of the UTG there is a list of so-called environmental groups that appear to support the proposal. I do not know if they do support the proposal or if Eolian asked for permission to use their names. There is a quote on the postcard from VPIRG: “Tapping VT’s wind resources is essential if we are to meet the state’s long-term clean energy goals. Moreover, most VTers agree that it’s the responsible thing to do rather than relying on other dirtier energy and transmit it to VT to meet our needs.”

Castleton pollsters have disclosed that when broken down the poll clearly shows that only in areas where there are no wind proposals are the majority of people in favor of industrial wind. The fact is that in all of the areas where there are proposals the majority of people are against industrial wind.
