Parker supports wind development and thinks the state can get 15% of its energy from wind, he says that would require at least 100 turbines on ridge lines all over Vermont.


To talk power, Scudder Parker went to NRG systems in Hinesburg, a company that manufactures wind measuring equipment used by wind power developers.

"Vermont deserves a Governor who will take necessary actions to insure reliable, affordable and responsible energy that promotes a sound economy," said Parker.

Energy policy is a core issue for Parker in his campaign. Parker once worked at the department of public service under the Dean administration. Parker supports wind development and thinks the state can get 15% of its energy from wind, he says that would require at least 100 turbines on ridge lines all over Vermont.

"I don't see it as a question of aesthetics I see it as a question of people recognizing wind turbines as we recognize church steeples and silos in barns as a part of something that is making our economy healthy and giving us choices as a state."

Parker also wants to double Efficiency Vermont's budget, bringing it to about $35 million. He says even though ratepayers would have to pay a higher a surcharge on their bills, the return would payoff over time in the form of energy savings.

"It's a good investment I think it is like a 401k plan and the other stuff you are just buying market price," said Parker
