New Haven’s planning commission is asking good questions and hedging bets on an uncertain energy future by asking the developers of a proposed 40-acre, 178-panel solar installation — which would be one of the state’s largest — to provide guarantees of its good intentions.

Vermont’s primary election is just two months away. Whichever of the five Democratic gubernatorial candidates wins the primary will face a challenging campaign against Republican Brian Dubie. Dubie can start his general election campaign over the summer, while the Democrats battle each other in the primary. With more than $800,000 already on hand, Dubie should be able to raise $1.5 million. The eventual Democratic nominee will need to catch up to Dubie in fund-raising.
