CITY RELEASES MAP SHOWING SOLAR ENERGY POTENTIAL

(Richmond, IN)--The city of Richmond has released a map of the city that shows its solar energy potential.  The map highlights larger buildings like schools and factories where the installation of rooftop solar energy could be feasible.  But, the city has also introduced race and equity into the project, claiming that, quote, marginalized residents are much less likely to have rooftop solar than white residents, unquote, and that those marginalized communities will be disproportionately burdened by rising temperatures.
