Bibliography 2: Solar Energy in the US

Solar energy is something that could move the US past its reliance on fossil fuels. In some parts of the country, the sun is beaming nearly all year round. I remember a few years ago, however, the government invested in a solar company and the initiative was a complete failure. I’ll look at the feasibility of solar usage in the US and how we can all get involved.

My audience are citizens, homeowners, and green energy advocates.
