As President-elect Donald Trump prepares to take office, it’s unclear what affect his administration might have on renewable energy, like solar and wind. Several of his Cabinet picks have ties to the oil and gas industry.
Trump is also a vocal supporter of coal. But the renewable fuel industry may have reason to be hopeful. A new report by the World Economic Forum says in more than 30 countries, the cost of wind and solar power has dropped to rates that are the same or cheaper than fossil fuels. And that could be good news for Georgia, as our state is a leader in the solar industry. We speak to Peter Dykstra, publisher of Environmental Health News. And Don Moreland, chair of the Georgia Solar Energy Association.
