Vermont’s Governor Peter Shumlin has set an aggressive goal of getting the state to 90 percent renewable energy by 2050. In this discussion, the Governor’s point person for the Department of Public Service, Commissioner Elizabeth Miller, and Representative Tony Klein, a key legislative leader, discuss this challenging task and other state energy program and policy issues. Klein (D-East Montpelier) has served ten years in the Vermont State Legislature, eight years on House Natural Resources and Energy Committee and is in his 4th year as chair. Before joining the Department in 2011, Miller was a practicing lawyer and business owner with Spink & Miller PLC in Burlington.
