Jul 7, 2015

WASHINGTON, DC – In response to today’s White House announcement on the new initiative to expand solar energy access and create clean energy jobs, LCV Vice President of Government Affairs Sara Chieffo released the following statement:

“We’re excited that the Obama Administration continues to demonstrate leadership in building a clean energy economy by developing solar power through community partnerships. These new programs unveiled today will help increase access for low and middle-income families to solar energy like never before, increase critical job training programs, and educate the public on the role of solar power. Prioritizing the expansion of solar power and other renewables is good for the environment, the economy and consumers’ pocket books.”
