Solar power is a key to energy security, Audrey Carleton advises on Vice.com. “Making one-in-four American homes use solar energy would generate millions of jobs and billions in utility bill savings, a new report from the Institute for Local Self-Reliance (ILSR) found.
“Published last week in collaboration with the Initiative for Energy Justice and the nonprofit Solar United Neighbors,” the post continues, “the report outlines the benefits of a proposal to offer solar power to 30-million homes in the US within the next five years, an idea ILSR has championed alongside 225 other organizations since February. ILSR is a group that promotes small business and local jobs around the United States.”
Maybe we should be looking at our rooftops in a new light.
