Let's all hope that this time Vermont spends their twenty years more productively and develops the replacement power needed. Perhaps we will build a new nuclear plant. I head a report on WCAX last night that said NY could have a new nuclear plant built in about ten years.

LOL! Anti-everything Vermonters actually do something from within to provide themselves with their own power; surely you jest. Maybe a few token feel good wind and solar projects rammed on the politically powerless up in the NEK. The only energy plan Vermont has is basically purchase from out of state / Country. The whining hypocrites could care less where their power comes from, as long as it not in their backyard.

They ought to build a Nuke plant in Putney! Great place for it. Then the hippies would have a great time with all of their protesting--quite a bit of entertainment for the rest of us to watch.

Should only be satisfied with a immediate shutdown and nothing else...
