Let Local Governments Create Clean Energy Jobs

We can all agree that saving energy is a good thing.

We can also all agree that creating new jobs is a good thing.

Therefore, it's a little strange that an energy conservation program that could put thousands of people back to work is languishing instead of flourishing.

As reported by Inside Climate News, the Qualified Energy Conservation Bond program:

'is supposed to help state and municipal governments develop clean energy projects. But of the $3.2 billion available, only $550 million—or just over 15 percent—has been spent since the program was created in 2008.

The problem, according to a coalition of clean energy advocates, is that the program’s guidelines are so vaguely written that it's almost impossible to figure out which projects qualify for the money.'
