WESTMINSTER, Vt. (AP) - The Vermont Public Service Department will hold a hearing on Monday, Oct. 26, to gather input on a draft of the state’s comprehensive energy plan.

The draft reaffirms Vermont’s goal of meeting 90 percent of the state’s energy needs through renewable sources by 2050.

The hearing will be from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Bellows Falls Union High School auditorium. Hearings have also been held in Lyndonville, Essex and Montpelier. The final hearing is Oct. 29 in Rutland.

The draft plan builds on the state’s accomplishments since the previous plan was completed in 2011. Some of those include updated building energy codes and a Vermont residential building energy label; new financing programs, including the Heat Saver Loan; and signing of the multi-state Zero Emission Vehicle memorandum of understanding.
