Community systems offer alternative paths for solar growth
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Strolling his church's rooftop among 630 solar panels, Bishop Richard Howell Jr. acknowledged climate change isn't the most pressing concern for his predominantly Black congregation — even though it disproportionately harms people of color and the poor. “The violence we’re having, shootings, killings, COVID-19,” Howell said wearily. “You’re trying to save families, and right now no one’s really talking about global warming.” Yet his Shiloh Temple International Ministries in north Minneapolis welcomed the opportunity to become one of many “community solar” providers popping up around the U.S. amid surging demand for renewable energy.
According to the New York Post, after the 17-year-old teen showed up to school late and attempted to enter his attendance, a staff member at the school noticed a handgun in his backpack. School safety agents were alerted of the incident and the teen was eventually arrested.
