What does this have to do with solar power? For me, it may have a very big impact. I want to work in the alternative energy industry. If you are reading this, you most likely have a similar desire. You may not act on it, but you have the itch too. Sooooo, how will this election “Change” our alternative outlook?

From his energy speech, the things I like.
• Help create five million new jobs by strategically investing $150 billion over the next ten years to catalyze private efforts to build a clean energy future.
• Within 10 years save more oil than we currently import from the Middle East and Venezuela combined
• Put 1 million Plug‐In Hybrid cars – cars that can get up to 150 miles per gallon – on the road by 2015, cars that we will work to make sure are built here in America
• Ensure 10 percent of our electricity comes from renewable sources by 2012, and 25 percent by 2025

I will focus on plug-in hybrid cars. Why, because I in live in Indiana. Indiana makes cars and car parts. I know, I have worked for my share of them. The problem is that many have closed and moved out of the US. So how will this be any different then before. It very well may not be but, here in Indiana I have little other choice. Now unless someone builds a solar or windmill manufacturing plant near me I will have to look at making parts for plug-in hybrids. I can do that.
