 Hillary Clinton calls for dramatic increase in renewable power

In a proposal released Sunday evening, Hillary Clinton announced that if she is elected president she will push for two national goals to combat climate change. Clinton said that under her watch the United States will have more than a half billion solar panels installed by the end of her first term, and that  the country will generate enough renewable energy to power every American home within ten years of her taking office.
 
According to Clinton, national solar capacity will be expanded to 140 gigawatts (GW) by the end of 2020, representing a 700 percent increase over current levels. The country would also add more renewable power generation capacity to the grid than in any decade in history.
