DPS: Lowell Mtn. turbines exceeded noise limits

Posted: Updated:
MONTPELIER, Vt. -

The state says the Lowell Mountain wind project exceeded noise limits last winter.

The Department of Public Service wants utility regulators to find the project in violation for exceeding the limits four times. But they also want the Vermont Service Board to hold off on sanctions for Green Mountain Power -- which operates the wind project -- and give the utility time to fix the problems causing that noise.
     
Project opponents want the turbines shut down until GMP can show there will be no violations. GMP says it has taken steps to comply with noise limits.
