Solar Energy Advocates Find Unexpected Ally In Tea Party


Florida is one of several states where the Tea Party has embraced a new cause: solar energy. Tea Party groups are teaming up with progressive organizations to open up the solar energy industry. It's an unusual coalition and puts them at odds in some states with another conservative grassroots organization, the Koch brothers-backed Americans for Prosperity.

Some Tea Party groups are mobilizing around something that until now has largely been associated with the left - solar energy. In Florida, Tea Party-ers are joining environmental and business groups to push for a ballot initiative. That would open up the state's solar industry to more private investment. As NPR's Greg Allen reports, that interest puts the Tea Party at odds with some other conservatives.



Fuck these anti-freedom assholes. Solar and wind is becoming number one and won't be ignored!

Well, for a retired person, especially in a sunny climate, solar makes all kinds of sense. Especially if they are in a buying coop and can by large amounts at the same time.
