Do you ever drive by the gas station only to see the price of gas has risen, again, and wish you weren’t so dependent on gasoline? If so, you’re not alone. A growing number of car owners in the U.S. have decided to ditch the pump, motivated by saving money, reducing their carbon footprint, or gaining access to the coveted HOV lane. As a result, plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) ownership is on the rise, nearing 300,000 total PEVs on the road and turning the U.S. into the leading PEV market in the world.

The capital markets are well aware of the stress and strife that coronavirus is putting on oil prices as the commodity continues to test new lows. One byproduct of the pandemic, however, that might not be getting enough coverage is the cloudy doom and gloom that the virus is bringing to the solar energy space. Solar energy businesses are also feeling the pinch, but not getting the support they desire from the federal government. “As Congress continues to address the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, we appreciate that they are prioritizing relief for families and small businesses,” said President and CEO of the Solar Energy Industries Association Abigail Ross Hopper. “There are several elements in this legislation that can help solar businesses and solar workers, including long-term unemployment insurance, business loans and provisions that support employee retention and other employee protections. We will be working to help our members understand what resources are available to them as a result of this legislation and how they can use those resources to help get through this difficult time.”
