Solar Power Pumps Up: More Cities Added to “SolSmart” Status by DoE

Recent news about solar power has been mixed. Some reports tout its increasing adoption and job growth, others express concerns about an uneven market and the uncertain future for subsidies. Here’s some decidedly upbeat news. This week, seven communities are being recognized as national leaders for “cutting red tape, making solar energy more affordable and accessible, and becoming ‘open for solar business.’” Cities as different as New York City and Moab, Utah are joining 36 communities representing 21.8 million people in 18 states that have received the SolSmart designation since the program was launched in 2016. The kicker? It’s a government program: the SunShot Initiative of the Department of Energy. Can someone please inform Secretary Perry about a DoE program that works?
