Consider this blog an olive branch offering to clean energy supporters on the Right, and a splash of cold water on the face of Democrats: stop with the doom & gloom predictions. Your echo chamber of outrage over the impending apocalypse is doing nothing to bridge the already enormous canyon between us and fellow American Trump-supporters.
Like most leftists, I was angry at the misinformation spread by The Donald on his campaign trail regarding solar. His claim that he was informed that a proposed solar investment would pay for itself in 28 years, if true at all, was extremely outdated.
But the President-elect has flip-flopped on many issues in the past, proving time and time again that his walk is going to be different from his talk. Having never held public office and therefore having no voting record, we’re forced to read between the lines to figure out where he stands on many issues.
And on solar, the lines are clear: Trump will be good for the solar industry.
