If allowed to go forward, this plan could deal a mortal blow to Vermont's future as a clean energy state. Not only will it allow GF to purchase energy from a dirty producer anywhere, it also will follow the property if and when GF sells the plant to another owner. Some huge energy consumer (such as a bitcoin miner) could purchase this large plant and bring in the dirtiest, cheapest electricity from anywhere, thereby ruining Vermont's status for clean energy.

I strongly oppose GlobalFoundries' petition to become a "self-managed utility." This concept does not exist in our laws and the PUC has not been given authority by the legislature to create such a category. Creating a self-managed entity would allow GlobalFoundries to circumvent Vermont's Global Warming Solutions Act and Renewable Energy Standards. As history has shown us, trusting a business to regulate itself is not a good idea, no matter how exemplary they are. Filed

I oppose Global Foundries petition to become a self-managed utility. To allow this would make a mockery of Vermont's aim to reduce carbon emissions to mitigate the ill effects of climate change. Acknowledged

I strongly oppose the proposal by GlobalFoundries to be exempt from renewable energy and climate laws. This is a large, profitable multinational company seeking to be a "self-managed utility", something that does not exist in state law. In addition they seek to have the exemption stay with the property, providing a greater incentive to sell the facility and move out of state thereby giving Vermonters working to improve our climate situation another slap in the face. Do not approve this. Filed

I oppose this petition for Global Foundries to become a self managed utility. It is a gross abuse of Vermont's efforts to reduce our climate impacts. Many if not most Vermonters are making sacrifices to change their individual impacts. I myself am now riding an ebike for most local travel, have installed heat pump heating and made many other personal changes. To see that all my efforts would be counteracted by the plans of one company is dismaying at best. Please do not approve this petition. Acknowledged
