LITTLETON — At the March town meeting, voters will consider a proposed 5-megawatt battery energy storage system (BESS) that proponents say will result in electricity rate savings for Littleton Water and Light customers. On Tuesday, the Select Board voted 2-0-1 (board member Linda MacNeil abstained because she is also a LWL commissioner) to place an article on the warrant asking voters if they want to lease the back lot of town-owned land — LWL’s west side substation at 1533 St. Johnsbury — to Convergent Energy and Power. During Monday’s board meeting, Tom Considine, superintendent of LWL, and Amanda Henry, director of development for the New York-based Convergent Energy and Power, which for 13 years has specialized in the systems, presented the plan.
