D.C. Adds More Solar as Supreme Court Stays EPA’s Clean Power Act

In the same week that the Supreme Court issued a temporary stay of the EPA’s Clean Power Act, the Administration advanced its plans to increase solar use across the government by signing a deal to install solar panels on 18 federal buildings. WGL Energy Systems has been contracted to do the work, which includes panels to be installed on the Ronald Reagan Building, according to the Washington Free Beacon, summarized in Energy Manager Today. Some might say that the contradictory moves are just another example of one branch of government not knowing what another department is doing. Others might argue that progress toward a renewably sourced energy future is unstoppable, despite momentary setbacks. We’re firmly in the latter camp.
