Ways to implement solar power

I suggest that solar-powered air conditioners be installed in government buildings. This will help reduce the stress on local power grids on hot summer days and save energy costs, as well as improve the environment.


Along the same line of thoughts, states that enjoy plenty of sunshine, e.g., Arizona, Florida, and Nevada, just to name a few, should be encouraged to implement wide usage of solar power and be used as "laboratories" to advance solar-power technologies and help drive down the costs. This will ignite a new economy and create new jobs.
