Krishnamoorthi Pushes Solar Energy and Creates New Caucus
Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi (D-IL) has created the Congressional Solar Caucus as part of his push to encourage his colleagues to learn more about and support solar energy. The freshman lawmaker arrived in DC last year to find that many of his colleagues did not share his interest in promoting solar energy. So, he andCongressman Ralph Norman (R-SC) -- also a first-term member on the opposite side of the aisle -- created the Solar Caucus this Spring. "At the end of the day, from a very practical standpoint, the cost of solar power is going down rapidly, the penetration of solar into the energy landscape is accelerating and both red states and blue states are now seeing a renaissance in solar power," said Krishnamoorthi.
