 The Governor’s Wind & Solar Energy Coalition is asking the Trump administration to provide funding for grid modernization, support clean energy research and speed up the permitting process for wind and solar projects. “The boons of renewable energy can be virtually endless with your Administration’s and Congress’ support of the key initiatives detailed here,” the letter, signed by Democratic Rhode Island Gov. Gina Raimondo and Republican Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback, says. “Your support of these initiatives will allow our nation to capitalize on renewable resources, meet the needs of Americans and bolster the economy.”
