February 6, 2010 by · Leave a Comment 

Late last week, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) introduced a bill aimed at getting 10 million new solar rooftop systems and 200,000 new solar hotimages-1 water heating systems installed in the U.S. in the next 10 years.

The bill would offer rebates for up to half of the cost of new solar-powered systems. The bill has nine co-sponsors, including Environment and Public Works Committee Chair Barbara Boxer (D-CA) and Sens. Patrick Leahy (D-VT), Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ), Robert Menendez (D-NJ), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) and Arlen Specter (D-PA).
