Now that Biden stopped the Keystone XL Pipeline, renewable energy has now moved from the back seat to the passenger seat. This term, oil and gas will step aside for wind, solar, and electricity. Here’s an update on Biden’s plans for solar power.
Solar Power Update
So, Biden cracked down on petroleum and it’s looking serious. While oil workers are rightfully frustrated, Biden promises to give them clean energy jobs instead. Seeing how solar is more efficient than wind and coal, solar will likely assume power. First, the United States is now awaiting admission back into the Paris Agreement, a 2016 international treaty that focuses on battling climate change. This will aid funding and support for Biden’s claim to transition into a cleaner country. His total clean energy plan will cost roughly $2 trillion. For now, he’s focusing on reducing carbon emissions. Therefore, air-polluting factories will be first priority. However, the full plan will begin operations in the spring.
Because the plan will not go into effect until spring, there’s not much else to report. We just know the Biden administration is raising money and formulating the ideal proposal that will work for everyone. They’re focused on how to best allocate funding and alternative jobs in order to help those who may lose their oil jobs. In the meantime, we will keep a close eye on solar energy’s update.
