Big 3 consider supply options

Vermont's three-largest electric utilities issued a joint request for new power supply resource proposals, casting a wide net across the northeast and Canada, and the state's two largest utilities issued an additional request for bids to supply more energy in case Vermont Yankee is unavailable.

In one RFP, the utilities are jointly seeking up to 100 megawatts of energy, up to 40 megawatts each for CVPS and GMP, and 20 megawatts for VEC. In the second RFP, CVPS is seeking an additional 100 megawatts and GMP an additional 50 megawatts.

An independent study found that the environmental and economic consequences of closing Vermont Yankee would be significant.
