Poll finds Vermonters support wind power development

Posted: Updated:

A new poll shows continued strong support for wind power development in Vermont.

The survey from the Castleton State College Polling Institute asked whether people support building wind energy turbines along the state's ridgelines-- 66 percent said yes, 19 percent said no and 14 percent were undecided.

A second question showed even greater support-- 69 percent-- if those turbines were built in the respondents' own communities.

This poll comes as the state is examining possible changes in the siting process for wind farms and the Legislature considers a moratorium on wind development.

This Castleton poll was conducted at the same time earlier this month as a survey on guns. The sample size was 620 people with a margin of error of 3.9 percent.
