Neighborhood Solar Power

Imagine two different pictures to characterize our energy choice. The one we have now is reliance on importing energy into neighborhoods, sometimes from hundreds of miles away, while we export dollars and jobs. The other picture is to generate energy from within our neighborhoods from homes, apartments, businesses, covering parking lots and other developed lands, literally pushing energy out from within along the powerlines located on our public right of way while importing and capturing dollars and jobs.

You get the cuts to your public services and earned benefits while the wealthy get the bailouts and tax breaks.
