“While the cost of solar panels has gone down in recent years, it is still out of reach for millions of low-income families that need it the most,” Sanders said in a statement. “Families across this country struggle to pay electricity bills and access to solar energy can help reduce these costs.”
"Many low-income families who would benefit the most from a reduction in their electricity bills are not taking advantage of this affordable, sustainable energy source because of a combined lack of access to financing options, and living under a roof that cannot support a solar panel," according to the senator's fact sheet.
Sanders added that his legislation "can achieve this goal, save families money and protect the planet for future generations."
