Renewable Energy in Rural America

The topic of the hour seems to be whether or not renewable energy has enough momentum to survive, or even make progress, during a Trump administration. Dave Roberts at Vox weights in, recognizing the fact that renewable energy seems to be taking root in rural communities that don't necessarily believe in climate change and which may well have voted for Trump.
What’s more, unlike the abstractions involved in climate, clean energy is real, tangible, and — perhaps most important of all — commercially viable. There are many things that divide Americans, but they are generally united on the benefits of making money.
