Writers Discuss Booming Solar Industry

So, maybe you’ve seen the meme?

Here are some articles that provide background. The meme seems to come from a Jan 16, 2015 article on Fortune.com. Two Slate contributors added their own voices to the subject.

  • “Installers, panel makers, and even traditional fossil fuel energy companies helped U.S. solar employment grow nearly 22 percent in 2014.” – Fortune
  • “The solar industry now employs more Americans than coal mining.” – Slate
  • “Renewable energy finally makes sense as a utility — and that’s why it’s becoming a threat to coal.” – Slate
