    EGEB: US solar hardware manufacturing + hypocrisy, Bloomberg drops $200M on mayors, more

    Electrek Green Energy Brief: A daily technical, financial and political review/analysis of important green energy news.

    California Lawmakers Model an Electric Car Program After the State’s Successful Solar InitiativeThis bill would continuously appropriate $5 million each year from the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund to the state board to support low-carbon transportation projects, including, among others, specified car-sharing programs and additional incentives for existing electric vehicle programs, thereby making an appropriation. The legislation lays out goals of 1.5 million electric cars by 2025 and 5 million by 2050. The next question of course – how to pay for it? Political wrangling to come.

    US mayors back plan for cities to use only renewable energy – along with this headline specifically focused on Bloomberg’s Next Anti-Washington Move: $200 Million Program for Mayors – Hundreds of mayors with a few hundred million supporting them is something powerful. Mayors don’t have the near same control or broad influence as federal legislation, but in these days of Trumpism it’s what we got. The money from Bloomberg is for much more than just renewable energy – but it is part of a broader process to help educate and position these mayors to make strong decisions going forward. Ground up. Thank you Mr. Bloomberg.
