Hydro Makes Small Town Comeback
Renewed interest in hydropower is shifting the state's attitude toward dams, said Rich Smith, deputy commissioner of the Department of Public Service. "Over the last, probably, 15 to 20 years, the state's been focused on removing dams from rivers," he said. "Now there's a realization that these dams could be used to provide power to some communities." "It's obviously clean and when you have a project like Chittenden that's been going on 100 years, there's a very low cost of operation because the cost of construction has long since been recovered," he said.
