Environment

We have a responsibility to future generations to leave behind an earth and environment that is clean and sustainable. This responsibility also presents opportunities to create jobs and grow our economy by inventing, manufacturing and installing clean energy technology and other sustainable solutions here in America. Environmentally sustainable policies and investments in renewable energy will reduce America’s dependence on fossil fuels and foreign oil, and help address climate change.
