Republicans Can Make Solar Support About Security, Faison Says

Presidential candidates should ignore discussions about the science of climate change and instead support clean energy as being for innovation, grid security and a domestic energy source, according to pollsters hired by Republican entrepreneur Jay Faison.

  • Faison supports market-driven solutions on clean-energy issues, and is donating to Republican candidates who share his views
  • Rooftop solar and electricity metering already in line with conservative Republicans who want less national control, said Kristen Soltis Anderson, a pollster for Echelon Insights hired by Faison’s group, ClearPath
