Settlement reached between Groton Wind and state AG's office
The hearings are not over yet. “The agreements have to be approved by the Site Evaluation Committee, and there are still some intervening parties that have yet to be heard,” said Michael Iacopino, the SEC’s attorney.
“Public safety remains our top priority at Groton and all our sites around the country, so we are pleased to have resolved the questions raised by the counsel for the public to all parties’ mutual satisfaction,” Iberdrola’s Paul Copleman said Monday.
In the settlement agreement, Iberdrola officials acknowledged making errors.
The agreement requires Groton Wind “to make a payment in the amount of $160,000 for the public benefit,” of which $10,000 would go to pay the state’s legal fees in association with the case, and the remaining $150,000 to the work being done by state and local officials at Livermore Falls in Holderness, Plymouth, and Campton.
