Clean Energy Industry Makes Bid for Influence with Republicans

Fortune carries a report from Reuters about green energy donations to Republican candidates and the hope for (finally!) bi-partisan support for renewable energy.

During the 2016 cycle, the wind and solar industry’s political action committees contributed more than $225,000 to Republican candidates for office, compared with $185,000 for Democrats. The numbers are not large by the standards of political donations but they mark the first time the industry has tilted its contributions toward Republicans, according to federal records.
