Letter to Congress

Posted on August 26, 2014, by All Energy

I'm Sue Owen, the Communications Intern here at All Energy Solar. Because I'll return to school this fall and won't be able to continue here, I wanted to write a letter to Congress that I hope will express how over the course of this summer internship, I have been wholly persuaded that solar power is the best way for the country to consume energy.

What an inspiring and educational internship this has been!
