Washington initiative promotes low-income solar installations

How can solar energy job training in low-income communities help strengthen the clean energy economy? During today's OnPoint, Greg Dotson, vice president for energy policy at the Center for American Progress, and Erica Mackie, co-founder and CEO at GRID Alternatives, discuss a new program launched in Washington, D.C., focused on expanding solar installations and job training to low-income communities. They address the policies that could expand the program to the mainstream and explain the benefits of solar energy to rural and low-income communities.
