A majority of Americans didn't just cast a vote for President Obama on Nov. 6. They also came down firmly on the side of renewable energy and the federal government's efforts to "level the playing field" with fossil fuels, argues the chairman of the solar power industry's leading trade group.
"The opposition made it a really big issue. They attacked it from day one and tried to turn that part of the president's record into a liability. The vote, to some extent, was a referendum on that, and it came down squarely on the side of clean energy," said Arno Harris, chairman of the Solar Energy Industries Association and CEO of Recurrent Energy, a major player in solar project development in North America.
He argued that there's never a sure thing when dealing with cutting-edge technology, which relies on both government and private investment to take off and thrive.
