Iberdrola Renewables says it will honor vote on proposed wind turbines in Grafton, Windham


GRAFTON >> The developer of a wind power project proposed for a Vermont forest says it will honor a public vote on the project.

Iberdrola Renewables' proposed 96-megawatt wind turbine project would be the first in Windham County. Vermont Public Radio reports the Spanish energy company last week sent out a letter to residents in Grafton and Windham saying the company continues to conduct engineering and environmental studies.

Plans call for 20 turbines to be built in Windham and eight in Grafton.

The letter says the developer will provide a detailed layout and economic benefits package next summer. By next fall, officials say Iberdrola will have a final project proposal and community benefits package.

The company hopes a public vote on the project will be held during the November election.
