I love this New York Times story by Ivan Penn about solar activist Debbie Dooley: A Gun-Owning Trump Fan’s New Crusade: Clean Energy
My favorite quotes include:
“We should be focusing on the technologies of the future, not the dinosaur technology of the past, Ms. Dooley said. “Our energy grid is vulnerable to attack. Rooftop solar keeps us safe. People like solar.”
"What’s more, she contends that embracing clean energy affirms the populist beliefs the Tea Party espouses. The monopoly control of utilities over energy supplies stands in contrast to the free market, she said, while solar and wind power represent energy freedom."
"Proponents of residential solar power like Ms. Dooley accuse utility companies and the energy industry at large of waging war on efforts to free consumers from their power companies, even if only for a slightly lower electric bill."
“I fully believe we should be good stewards of what God gave us,” Ms. Dooley said.
Thanks for your activism, Debbie!
