Vermont utilities say it makes more sense to build generation facilities in some areas of the state as opposed to more power lines, but they are not gaining much traction with the regional electric system operator, ISO New England.
You can't trust any of these people to tell us what their real motivation are?
"Making sure there is enough power to meet the demand of utility customers is one issue down the road, according to VELCO President and CEO Chris Dutton."
This is classic altruism abuse or altruism corruption...anti "doing good" talk.
So he is peddling Gaz Metro's wares, right...?
He'd be peddling the economic interest of the vermont electricity players.
He is peddling high cost and profit electricity.
You think he is singing the ratepayer interest?
This is submission from outside the article?

This is not a new issue but instead goes back to the formation of ISO-NE and there is a fundamental disagreement even among the transmission owners in New England whether the reliability planning process should be transmission only or include other resources such as generation or efficiency. While ISO-NE and it stakeholders including the utilities developed a transmission only process in the neighboring state of New York a multi-resource process was developed that allowed generation and efficiency resources to be proposed as alternative regulated solutions that could be compared against transmission solutions. If generation or DSM was found to be more cost effective it could replace Transmission. The hitch in New York is that since the regional system operator serves a single state the New York Public Service Commission is the entity that decides whether generation or efficiency solutions should replace transmission. The NYPSC has this authority because my colleague Professor Kreiss is correct that FERC has more limited powers in regards to generation and efficiency and many states believe that they retain jurisdiction over these resources. FERC accepted this process in NY but this would be more difficult to achieve In New England given that it is a regional process containing multiple states each with their own independent authority.
You don't the some of most expensive electricity in the nation in Vermont and Ne England without a hoard of these blood suckers working against you.
You know everyone is scrambling behind the scenes to dump cheap electricity and bring on really expensive electricity.
The watchword on the grid today is to dump production in order to boost prices.
