    Sanders sees ‘revolution’ in energy

    Mar. 18, 2017, 7:39 am by Alan J. Keays

    U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders stood outside a field filled with solar panels in Rutland and told 17-year-old Cameron Wilk that he was looking out at a revolution.“When you’re my age, this is going to look obsolete, old-fashioned,” Sanders said Friday afternoon to Wilk at the site of Green Mountain Power’s Stafford Hill solar farm.

    “This is the future,” the independent senator from Vermont said just a few feet away from 7,700 solar panels. “It’s going to become more efficient, the country is going to move to sustainable energy.”

    “This is pretty revolutionary stuff,” Sanders told Wilk, a senior at Rutland High School.

    “Yes it is,” Wilk replied.

    Sanders said he has seen GMP come a long way since he started following the utility.

    “I can remember way back when, when Green Mountain Power was a very, very conservative corporation, much more concerned about their profits than the needs of their customers or the environment,” Sanders said. “That has changed.”

    He talked of Vermont leading the way in New England with solar production and the capacity to store the power that it creates.

    “So, the day is going to come when solar is going to be able to provide electricity for us 24 hours a day,” Sanders said. “That is revolutionary and that is extraordinary.”

    2. We need to replicate Bernie Sanders, by the thousands.
