Washington, D.C.

Today the White House announced a new initiative to increase access to solar energy in low and middle income communities across the country. Earthjustice’s Managing Attorney for Clean Energy, Jill Tauber, responds to the "Clean Energy Savings for All Americans Initiative" below.

Statement from Jill Tauber, Managing Attorney for Clean Energy at Earthjustice:

"We applaud the administration's announcement today to increase access to solar energy and energy efficiency across the country, especially in low- and moderate-income communities. Removing barriers to installing solar panels, increasing access to community solar and other policies that reduce energy bills and greenhouse gas emissions is a win-win for people and for our climate."
