LOWELL — Vermont utility regulators have opened an investigation into why the Lowell wind turbines have not deployed an aircraft detection lighting system as promised by the developers.

Vermonters for a Clean Environment filed a complaint March 16 saying Kingdom Community Wind developers Green Mountain Power (GMP) and its partners Vermont Electric Cooperative (VEC) and the transmission company Vermont Electric Power Company (VELCO) failed to meet conditions of the project’s certificate of public good.
