Good News: Obama launches Solar Energy Job Program for 50,000 Veterans
Okay, okay, it’s probably politically timed for the mid-term election. So what? It’s still good news. And let’s make sure that the solar projects these vets end up installing are small, local, and everywhere, rather than centralized corporate behemoths that cover deserts, require long-distance transmission, and refill the same old top-down corporate structure with new content.
I.e., not this:
Just took this photo of the front of the DeKist house, next to mine, with colorful “ecowarriors” sticking to the front wall, the beginnings of fruit and nut bearing bushes, a new asparagus bed next to the road, and a solar installation that works for both houses on the roof: 32 panels; 16 for each house, about 75% of current electric usage. We aim to get that down.
