The Vermont Public Service Board has been methodically assessing a slate of net metering applications that were filed ahead of the January 1, 2017 change in net metering rules. Many of these applications were filed hurriedly and lacking various required elements in an attempt to get them in before the rules changed. The Board is making the determination, on a case by case basis, as to which of these applications is to be deemed incomplete, and thus dismissed.
I represented an intervenor/adjoining landowner in this case, and in coordination with Regional Planning and the Town of Whiting filed for dismissal, as the application was deficient in several aspects. The dismissal was issued May 22, 2017, and is subject to potential reconsideration and appeal.
