SWANTON — The Public Service Board will not set any further dates for its regulatory review of Swanton Wind until the project developers file, “at a minimum,” a complete System Impact Study.

The board announced its decision in an order issued Thursday, responding to proposals to reschedule the board’s review process, which has bloated beyond the original timeline determined in October 2016.

The board’s decision concurs with assertions the Department of Public Service (DPS) made in a June 2 filing. The DPS asserted that Swanton Wind’s application for a “Certificate of Public Good,” essentially a permit to begin the construction process, does not contain necessary information regarding system stability and reliability and the project’s impact on Vermont utilities and customers.
