California Sun


It is alarming how dependent California is on dirty energy sources even though we are one of the states with the most potential solar power. Why not utilize all this clean energy, rather than depend on the harmful fossil fuels that pollute our skies and present health risks in our future? We need to promote the use of solar energy in California by garnering support for Governor Jerry Brown’s proposal to get three million more solar-paneled roofs in California by 2020.
