This is a good example of a specific push for local environmental programs to produce clean energy jobs in areas once dedicated to steel, coal, and dirty industry. Over the next two years, Democrats must make good on middle class jobs and re-training for those left behind with manufacturing shifts overseas. We need a few very visible examples as counter-point to the conman promises of trump and his minions to draw the moderate middle back.

Hillary had a vision of a Marshall Plan for solar that got no attention whatsoever (except for getting trashed by Bernie Brats).

    I’m aware of her common sense approach. What is different now is that we need to support local initiatives like this and have proven results, not just a bullet point in the platform that trump hijacked all focus away from.

    Elon Musk is talking about bringing power back to PR with solar which I think would be a fabulous idea. Even better if the Clinton Foundation supports it with their own solar vision.

    Toni Seger This nation needs the liberal/moderate billionaires to lead pragmatic change like this. Bill and Melinda Gates do a great job with their huge foundation as well in the areas of improving health and education for young girls in impoverished areas. I’d like to see them help rebuild a modern school system with based on re-engineering of education.

    Robert, I think we’ll see more of that as a way to counter disastrous Trump policies, but in the long run, we need to see government take responsibility for impoverished children who lack education (even as DeVos dismantles public education). In the long run, as government retreats from doing its job of, by and for the people, we can’t make up the difference with foundations, however well intended they are.
