Administration Pushes Solar Power Generation on Federal Land

One of the main goals of the current US administration has always been saving the environment, and reducing carbon emission by introducing more green energy.
The federal government has been investing billions of dollars into construction of large-scale solar power plants on federal land in California. The plans had been delayed for many years mostly due to the protests from environmental groups because the federal land was the main habitat of endangered species such as desert tortoise, blunt-nose leopard lizard, and other wild animals. Recently, the government decided to do it just right with “where, what and how.” The new land has been approved by various environmental groups.
The photovoltaic industry, equipped with the latest technology and tools for measuring thin-film thickness, has already manufactured enough solar panels to be transported to the site where the largest scale project, Blythe Mesa Solar Project, will be launched. It is going to be a four hundred and eighty five megawatt solar plant that will be generating enough clean energy to supply a hundred and eighty thousand homes.
The success of such solar energy projects so far was only possible with the federal funding they received, however things are changing now, and green energy is becoming an equal rival partner to fossil fuels. The federal funding is going to decrease in the near future, which has not stopped new projects from coming up. This can only mean that solar power projects can make money and become independent from government subsidies.
