Will Exiting the Paris Climate Accord Affect the US Solar Industry?

The long and short of it is that it wont.  Join us today as we discuss how the momentum in the solar industry has already reached a point where it will continue to build.  Solar Jobs were 2nd in the energy sector behind oil jobs, and demand is only going up as worn out coal fired plants come offline, utilities respond to the public sentiment, and people take advantage of federal, state,and utility level incentives.  I discuss how I think China is competing with us on the R&D side and that we could lose our leadership on this front during the current administration.  The reality is that coal jobs aren’t coming back.  Storage and Natural Gas technologies will fill the off peak generation gap and as they become cheaper the switch becomes even easier.
