In this week’s address, President Obama called Orion Energy Systems in Manitowoc, Wisconsin an example of how America can win the future by being the best place on Earth to do business. Orion was able to open with the help of small business loans and incentives that are creating demand for clean energy technologies. By sparking innovation and spurring new products and technologies, America will unleash the talent and ingenuity of American workers and businesses, which will lead to new, good jobs.
A while back, I stated clean energy was our way forward and was our "to the moon" moment. Or as the President said in his STOU Tuesday night, this is our "Sputnik moment". I think this is the future and we should all embrace it.
Let's just hope the rest of the country gets behind this too.
