Obama Administration Recruits Vets for Solar

Can anyone think of a better place for armed forces veterans to land than the explosive solar sector?

President Obama probably doesn’t think so. In early April, Obama announced an expansion of U.S. government efforts to train 75,000 Solar Ready Vets for the PV industry — which, it never gets boring to say, is adding jobs to the American economy at 10 times the national average. The President and Senate Democrats are lobbying for Congress to give the Department of Energy enough funding to double military solar training from 10 to 20 military bases, and counting.
