In Vermont, energy transmission projects must go through a site-specific environmental, economic and social impacts review process. The [[Federal Energy Regulatory Commission]] (FERC) has jurisdiction over most hydroelectric projects, including primary transmission lines required for the project. However, a developer may need to obtain a Certificate of Public Good (CPG), from the [[Vermont Public Service Board|Public Service Board]] (Board) for a transmission line extension project, or a group net-metered hydroelectric power system interconnection. [[Title 30 Chapter 5 Powers and Duties of Department of Public Service and Public Service Board|30 V.S.A. § 248 et seq.]]
The Board will conduct a CPG review pursuant to [[Title 30 Chapter 5 Powers and Duties of Department of Public Service and Public Service Board|30 V.S.A. § 248 et seq.]] The Board must find that the project promotes the general good of the state in order to grant a CPG. [[Title 30 Chapter 5 Powers and Duties of Department of Public Service and Public Service Board|30 V.S.A. § 248 et seq.]]
