MONTPELIER — A Vermont group that promotes renewable energy says it can support new power lines running through the state to southern New England — with conditions.

Renewable Energy Vermont issued a position paper Monday saying the state should push to build a “green energy corridor.”

The group said Vermont should require that the new power lines carry only renewable energy and that their developers should be required to support in-state renewable energy programs and projects.

The group said good policy around the power lines should help Vermont reach its energy goals.
