Jason Carter: Spend time & resources developing solar & wind

Q: What is your plan to increase solar and wind energy in Georgia?

A: We have to spend time and resources developing those alternatives energies. I've sponsored bipartisan legislation to make it easier for people to finance solar installations. We need to free up the private sector to do that because right now they are not free to do it. I have spent a lot of time with the solar industry folks and with advocates promoting solar energy. I am a strong supporter of those alternative energies.
