US to Offer More Funds for Solar Energy

The US. Department of Energy has just announced that $27 million will be granted to aid solar energy projects. This money is expected to help cut costs of solar energy and encourage use of solar energy by homeowners. It should be noted, however, that this funding does not apply to the panels themselves, only the hardware associated with the panels.

Steven Chu, the US Energy Secretary, said:

"These investments under the SunShot program can help to transform the solar energy industry by addressing significant challenges to solar energy deployment, including permitting and installation." 
Perhaps with monetary aid citizens may be more willing to consider other energy options. What do you think?
