I work as a Project Manager for a commercial and industrial solar developer and know a thing or two about building large solar projects. I am constantly disappointed and let down when politicians try to speak on the issue of renewable energy; Green New Deal I'm looking at you.
While these politicians mean well it is clear they don't know the first thing about the challenges we face in the industry.
My goal with this campaign is to get in front of members of Congress that want to do something about climate change and give them insights that might actually lead to an increase in deployed renewable energy assets.
About renewable energy
Nobody has commented on this campaign yet
Renewable energy is energy produced from sources that do not deplete or can be replenished within a human’s lifetime. The most common examples include wind, solar, geothermal, biomass, and hydropower. This is in contrast to non-renewable sources such as fossil fuels.
In 2017, eighteen percent of all electricity in the United States was produced by renewable sources, including solar, wind, and hydroelectric dams.
Renewable energy is one of the most effective tools we have in the fight against climate change. Additionally, renewables energy provides a wide range of economic and public health benefits. It is important that we expand large scale solar development into new markets.
