Shining a Light on the Darker Side of Solar

In today’s edition of The Heartland Daily Podcast, Managing Editor of Environment & Climate News H. Sterling Burnett speaks with Michi Iljazi. Iljazi is the communications and policy manager for the Taxpayers Protection Alliance. The Taxpayers Alliance has a subsidiary called SolarSecrets.org which is dedicated, in their words, to “shining a light on the darker side of solar power.”

In addition it exposes the sleazy business practices of one company in particular, SolarCity?
