Energy is Obama’s Number 1 priority

Published by The Editors | Filed under policy

Energy is going to be President Obama’s number one priority. That should bode well for homeowners trying to lower their electric bills, contractors installing renewable home energy systems and job seekers with the skills/desire to get into green energy. Obama wants to spend $150 billion on a green energy/jobs program. He wants to create an Apollo-like program to make America energy independent. He has said

“there is no better potential driver that pervades all aspects of our economy than a new energy economy … That’s going to be my No. 1 priority when I get into office.”

This is his priority over health care and tax reform. The hope for homeowners should be that this dedication will translate into expanded tax credits for clean home power systems.
