Vermont Energy Plan
Vermont is now debating its future energy policy. My students have just been assigned the job of reading the report and analyzing the recommendations in light of the work that they have done over the past year. Our state is in a bit of a crisis. Vermont Yankee will be decommissioned in next decade and our Hydro Quebec contract will expire in just a couple of years. These energy sources are responsible for almost 60% of the electricity in Vermont. Combine this with the fact that oil and LNG prices are rising fast and you have a problem in the shire.
So just what are the honorable ones planning to do about this issue. What is their plan? It is interesting that the simple overview is posted using Adobe but the rest of the report is in Word Perfect. Does anyone even use WP anymore? Using this format to make documents to make these documents public is not the best way to practice open government.
I'll be posting their reviews in a week.
