Energy Citizens from Every Rooftop:

If this bill has even a remote possibility of passing, I am for it. Except for the mega-greenhouse gas fuel corporations, I cannot understand why anyone would be against this renewable, clean, power source that we all could become a part of. Another benefit, besides green jobs, energy independence, and reducing greenhouse gases, would be reducing the albedo effect of all our black rooftops absorbing more heat, especially in our urban area.

If all our rooftops were a lighter color they would reflect instead of absorbing solar energy and adding to our climate change issue. Check out the actual bill, introduced by Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT).

A BILL To increase the quantity of solar photovoltaic electricity by providing rebates for the purchase and installation of an additional 10,000,000 solar roofs and additional solar water heating systems with a cumulative capacity of 10,000,000 gallons by 2019.
