Trade group head Rhone Resch reacts to lack of tax incentives in energy plan

As the first session of the 110th Congress wrapped up last year, the president signed a new energy bill into law. The plan increases fuel economy standards and boosts the use of biofuels. Tax incentives for renewable energy industries were left out of the final package, however. During today's OnPoint, Rhone Resch, president of the Solar Energy Industries Association, reacts to the energy bill and explains how his industry plans to address the need for incentives in 2008. Resch discusses the key technological and financial hurdles the industry needs to overcome to bring solar to the mainstream and explains the role the solar industry will play in the future of the green collar job market.
