Morning Brew's Patrick Kulp is reporting on President Biden's solar initiative. 

On Earth Day, the Biden administration announced a $7 billion initiative to support solar energy adoption among nearly a million low-income households. The "Solar For All" grant competition, enabled by the Inflation Reduction Act, will distribute funds to various states, municipalities, tribal governments, and nonprofits. Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm discussed how this initiative aims to bridge the gap in solar adoption, particularly among poorer communities who could benefit most from reduced energy costs. The program is part of broader efforts to transition the U.S. to clean energy by 2035, with solar energy seen as a key component. Granholm emphasized the importance of pairing solar power with storage solutions to enhance reliability and efficiency, especially as some states face challenges with solar incentives and grid integration.
