Vt. efforts working to make power grid more diverse

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin says he's going to encourage his five New England counterparts to work with the company that manages the regional power grid to take better advantage of the fast expanding sources of clean electricity across the region.

Shumlin says the discussion between the governors and ISO New England becomes critical because of the region-wide rush to add more sources of wind and solar power.

He visited ISO New England headquarters on Tuesday and discussed many of the issues.

The Shumlin administration and the state's electric utility, Green Mountain Power, have been working to resolve what some describe as an ongoing difference of opinion with ISO New England about the best, most reliable way to bring that renewable electricity to customers throughout the region.
