The Solar Foundation’s State Solar Jobs Census 2015 has lots of good news… except for Alabama: Alabama’s non-existent or even regressive solar policies have resulted in our “Sunny South” state ranking 50th in solar jobs per capita. (Indeed, as if to add insult to injury, a town called Alabama in New York state is expected to create more than three times the total number of solar jobs than the entire State of Alabama — and recently attracted an additional $10M investment from Korea.)

Why Buy Local?

Most produce in the US is picked 4 to 7 days before being placed on supermarket shelves, and is shipped for an average of 1500 miles before being sold. And this is when taking into account only US grown products! Those distances are substantially longer when we take into consideration produce imported from Mexico, Asia, Canada, South America, and other places.
