138Senator Bernie Sanders, co-sponsor of the Ten Million Solar Roofs Act, has written an op-ed piece advocating solar in the US and he calls for 200,000 new solar water heating systems to be installed in the next 10 years.

He writes “If we are serious about moving toward energy independence in a cost-effective way, we should invest in solar energy.  If we are serious about cutting air and water pollution and reducing greenhouse gas emissions, we should invest in solar energy. If we are serious about creating a significant number of good paying jobs and making the United States a world leader in the production of sustainable energy, we should invest in solar energy. And, as we move forward in the solar revolution, a very good step forward would be the passage of the Ten Million Solar Roofs Act.”
