" Both sides tended to adopt an us-versus-them mentality....This can no longer be the case given that the paradigm has fundamentally changed. Over the past five years, solar has become AmericaâEUR(TM)s fastest-growing, nonpartisan energy source."

"According to a census report by The Solar Foundation, more than 260,000 Americans are currently employed in our industry. Since the first report in 2010, the overall number has tripled."

let's not loose this. Please keep working to keep solar energy."

Thanks for sharing the link to the article by Tom Werner. Good read and I hope companies along with the government work together and move forward aggressively with renewables'

"This is why we must put the us-versus-them, conventional-versus-renewable debate in the rear-view mirror. Everyone in the industry knows that clean energy is our future, but the most successful companies in the next 5-10 years will be those that build an integrated power business model.

The energy infrastructure of tomorrow won’t rely on one exclusive source — it’s simply not possible. All of our considerable resources, whether from the ground, ocean or sky, must be available to consumers as a matter of choice and free-market competition. A testament to how the landscape is changing is that more than 60 percent of U.S. installed solar as of the end of 2016 is purchased by electric utilities."

The ONLY reason for pushing expanding fossil fuels as a primary source is to recuperate and increase returns on existing investments. (i.e., direct individual benefits). Unfortunately, DT is among those who stand to lose on their anticipated profits if/when the balance tips towards the renewable alternative energy industries ...
Thanks, Ruth
