As President-elect Donald Trump prepares to take office, it is unclear what effect his administration might have on renewable energy. Trump has raised concerns about wind and solar energy, and several of his Cabinet picks have ties to the oil and gas industry. However, the renewable fuel industry may have reason to be hopeful. According to a recent report from the World Economic Forum, the cost of wind and solar power has dropped in more than 30 countries to rates that are the same or cheaper than fossil fuels. That could be good news for Georgia, as the state is a leader in the solar industry. We talked about this with Peter Dykstra of Environmental Health News and Don Moreland of the Georgia Solar Energy Association.
