Solar Energy Power And Koch Brother Power
Over 25% of new electric power generation capacity is from renewable energy sources. The use of solar power has been stimulated by programs which enable consumers to use solar panels to cut their energy costs. The Koch brothers have been using ad campaigns to discourage the use of solar power. (Apparently, this is what we mean by freedom of speech in America. Money talks.)They have no interest in having the free market determine the outcome. Their love affair with the free market only works when it benefits their financial interests. In red states like Arizona their ads compare solar power with the healthcare mandates in "Obamacare". Anything that can be connected with Obama in red states is usually a winner. However, that does not influence homeowners who have been able to reduce their energy costs by putting solar panels on their roofs.
