Green Mountain Power and Vermont Electric Cooperative, Inc. can proceed with the construction of an industrial wind project on Lowell Mountain, as the Vermont Supreme Court has dismissed a legal challenge to the project.  The 21-turbine Kingdom Community Wind project is due to come on line in December 2012.  The project's challengers, Lowell Mountains Group Inc. and the towns of Albany and Craftsbury, Vermont, claimed the project ignored or departed from plans to minimize environmental disruption.  The Supreme Court disagreed, upholding the project’s certificate of public good, granted last year by the Public Service Board, which determined that the wind farm’s benefits outweighed its negative impacts.  Burlingtonfreepress.com has more on the story.
