Hillary Clinton, the Democratic presidential candidate released a fact sheet detailing her plan to fight climate change on July 26th-- and it focuses on promoting clean energy generation across the country. Along with the transition to a clean energy economy comes new jobs putting up solar panels, building wind turbines and retro-fitting buildings.
The plan includes a promise to install half a billion solar panels by the end of Clinton’s first term, which would represent a 700 percent increase. Clinton also promised that, if elected, enough renewable energy would be produced to power every home in the country within 10 years.
“We can make a transition over time from a fossil fuel economy, predominantly, to a clean renewable energy economy, predominantly,” she said.
