July 30, 2015 (San Diego’s East County) - With Hillary Clinton leading the pack of Presidential hopefuls, America could increase its solar capacity by 700% by 2020. The latest CNN poll shows 44% of the voters respondents favourable to her. This is quite a lead over the two next most favoured candidates, Republicans Jeb Bush and Donald Trump (who both had 34%).

WILL POWER REPORT: SOLAR JOBS

 

Nothing but the truth!

August 22, 2011 (San Diego)--How could the US put five million unskilled workers on the job in three months without raising taxes?  Simple- invest in a self-payout revolving fund which would underwrite putting solar panels on residential roofs all over America. Much of this labor is pretty much unskilled labor. You certainly don't need a college degree to haul solar panels onto a roof and screw them down.
