Invest in solar energy

By Staff | Oct 12, 2011

To the editor,

Solar energy is one of the best ways to create the jobs we need, and there is no question we need jobs now. There are more than 5,500 solar companies putting more than a hundred thousand people across the country to work, and this industry keeps on growing.

An investment in solar energy creates seven times more jobs than the same investment in coal, nuclear or natural gas. The attacks on solar energy are just a purely political maneuver when we desperately need to move forward towards a clean energy future.

Please contact your Congressional Representative and ask him to initiate and vote for jobs that will produce more clean, renewable energy.
