Vermont, if you let VY die, you can say good-bye to your image of a low-carbon state. Hope you're proud of yourselves.

I believe that the closing of VY is a done deal. Would be very surprised if it did not happen. Entergy and the PSB have not done the job they should have been doing. Our PSB was lax in its oversight of Entergy. NY PSC is keeping a close watch on Entergy and the plants they own there.

The real problem is the failure of our Legislature and Utilities to have done LONG TERM ENERGY PLANN-
ING. As it stands now we/Vermont will be at the mercy of HQ. Not only outside, but out of the country for our energy needs.
