Energy Plan Comments: By the End of the Day Tomorrow

A reminder. Comments on the Comprehensive Energy Plan for Vermont are due by 5 p.m. tomorrow.

Here's the plan.

You can use the following email address to comment on it.

An earlier blog post contains several references that might be helpful in writing your comments.

The Long and Short of It

The plan is long, but your comments can be short! Be sure to comment.

The plan's length and inconsistencies remind me of the saying: "If you can't blind them with brilliance, baffle them with bull droppings." Luckily, other people have analysed the plan. If you take advantage of their work, you can get a reasonable comment written in short period of time.

Update: Well, it is too late to do anything about the plan, but you can listen to John McClaughry (of the Ethan Allen Institute) on VPR. You can also read the transcript. As McClaughry says: this Plan...requires state government to use its coercive powers to see that Vermont gets 90% of its energy from renewable sources by 2050
