The Partnership completed a strategic assessment of generation development options for a consortium of Vermont’s electric providers. This technology neutral analysis compared the ability of each generation alternative to provide projected future capacity needs, key risk factors, development and operating costs, environmental considerations and regulatory risk.
Essex is the lead technical resource in a collaborative phased effort to evaluate the feasibility of repowering five existing dams on an historic American Heritage River in Rhode Island.
