Bennet installing solar panels to promote Colorado jobs
DENVER, Colorado – Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet wants voters to associate clean energy with jobs. So he’s climbing to the roof of a Denver home to help install solar panels with a new company.
Bennet was headed to the installation of an American-made solar panel array with a company hiring people to install solar panels.
Democrats nationwide are trying to promote clean-energy jobs as they prepare to debate climate-change legislation that will likely have people worried the move away from fossil fuels will cost jobs.
Bennet and other Democrats in the Senate have proposed a bill to give tax credits to American-based solar panel manufacturers.
