With Elijah Cummings involved I am sure this will work out even better than imagined! We should be spending even more money to help the lower-income communities save money! I am all-in on this! Where can I contribute to this worthy endeavor? Where can I get a contract to install these plants?

White House to unveil solar panel program for poor areas

WASHINGTON, July 7 (UPI) -- The Obama administration will unveil a project 
Tuesday that will help low- and middle-income Americans obtain solar panels for 
energy production, taking another step in the president's goal of tackling 
climate change.

The administration said by 2020 it plans to triple the capacity of solar and other 
renewable energy systems in federally subsidized housing and make it easier for 
homeowners to borrow money for solar panels. The White House said the plan will 
"help continue to scale up solar for all Americans, including those who are renters, 
lack the startup capital to invest in solar, or do not have adequate information on how 
to transition to solar energy."

"We need to expand opportunities for more families to reap the benefits of using 
cleaner sources of energy that can also help households save money on their utility 
bills," Brian Deese, Obama's top energy adviser, said Monday.

Deese and Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., will travel to Baltimore Tuesday to roll 
out the program with a key component from the Energy Department to help build 
neighborhood solar farms that don't require panels to be installed on the roofs 
of homes and businesses. It's meant to make solar an option to renters who 
can't install solar panels on rooftops.

Deese said the Energy Department "will provide low-cost financing, particularly to 
households, and improve our government lending programs to make them easier to utilize so 
that it's easier for individuals to take advantage of this benefit."

Deese said the program includes commitments totaling about $520 million from 
investors, charities, states and cities to pay for solar and energy-efficient 
projects for lower-income communities. The program will not only help the 
planet but also help local residents, Cummings said.

"The difference in a monthly bill of $10 or $15 means a lot to the people who live 
on my block," Cummings said.
