State offers incentive for solar panel users

Posted on July 25, 2011 |
By Andrew Stein



ADDISON COUNTY — A new law requires electric utilities give a credit to their customers who produce some of their own power through home solar power panels. The credit is 20 cents for every kilowatt hour their units produce.

When the roughly 14-cent-per-kWh cost of power purchased from Central Vermont Public Service (CVPS) or Green Mountain Power (GMP) is factored into the mix, a solar customer will receive an approximate 6-cent credit called an “adder” for every kWh used and produced.

Guest editorial: Do we really get the lesson of women's soccer loss to Japan

Posted on July 21, 2011 |
By Emerson K. Lynn



When the women’s soccer team collapsed into a national heartache Sunday there was this collective urge to find a way to make the pain disappear. It hurt. They had tried so hard, done so well and we had prepared ourselves for a moment of well-deserved glory.

Yet, a cruel fate, and some gargantuan Japanese hearts, stole it from our girls, and us, and left in its place a sense of undeserved loss.

It wasn’t supposed to be this way.

It rarely is, and yet, it keeps happening and the psychological and political consequences surround us.

ADDISON COUNTY — When the American settlers first crossed the Great Plains, they encountered native species of prairie grass like switchgrass and big blue stem.
