CHAPTER 30. PUBLIC SERVICE
Executive Order No. 30-4
[Extension of Declaration of Energy Emergency with Respect to
Damaged PV20 Transmission Line]
WHEREAS, on April 19, 1994, wind-driven ice on Lake Champlain damaged or destroyed eleven support structures of the PV20 high voltage electric transmission line owned and operated by Vermont Electric Power Company, Inc. ("VELCO"); and
WHEREAS, as a result of that natural disaster, Executive Order No. 09-94 was signed on May 20, 1994 which, among other things, suspended certain state requirements concerning the rebuilding of a temporary replacement line and which order expires on December 31, 1995; and
WHEREAS, VELCO has proposed an underground permanent replacement for the existing above-ground temporary line; and
WHEREAS, the required approval process for the underground line before the Vermont Public Service Board has not been completed and is not likely to be completed by December 31, 1995; and
WHEREAS, the justification for granting Executive Order No. 09-94 still exists.
NOW THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED THAT I, Howard Dean, by virtue of the power vested in me as Governor, do hereby amend Executive Order No. 09-94 to extend the duration of the temporary replacement line by one year from December 31, 1995 to December 31, 1996 to allow VELCO to obtain the necessary approvals to build an underground line to replace the temporary line which is over Lake Champlain. All other conditions and requirements of that Executive Order shall remain in effect.
This Executive Order shall take effect upon signing.
Dated December 28, 1995.
