Gov. Phil Scott made the comments Monday. He highlighted a new solar power installation by the Waterbury-based SunCommon that installed solar panels over four parking spaces outside the Hunger Mountain Cooperative in Montpelier.
Scott says reaching the 90 percent goal, established by his Democratic predecessor Peter Shumlin, will require changes in technology, but renewable energy technology is changing every day.
Scott also said that renewable energy technology is also a source of jobs that fits with his administration's economic development goals.
SunCommon says its timber frame solar canopy is a way to expand solar beyond the traditional rooftop and backyards.
