BARTON, Vt. (AP) - A Vermont town is going to study the feasibility of generating electricity through a hydro-power facility on Crystal Lake Falls.

The town of Barton has hired consultant Jay Boeri to conduct the study that will cost no more than $12,500. The final report is due within three months.

The Caledonian Record (https://bit.ly/1AcPuG5 ) reports the study will consider whether it’s feasible to develop a small-scale, low-impact hydro system that would provide renewable power and reduce costs for Barton Village Electric customers.

It is estimated the Crystal Lake Falls project could between 800,000 kilowatt hours and 1.2 gigawatt hours of electricity.
