Last year alone was record-breaking for new installations, and the amount of solar power installed in the United States has increased around eleven fold.

Solar is a smart investment.&nbsp; The average cost of solar panels has dropped by more than 60%, and the cost for a solar photovoltaic electric system has declined by about 50%.&nbsp; The numbers tell an important story: There has never been a time when solar is more affordable and more available to so many Americans.&nbsp; Solar is not just a prospect; it&rsquo;s a reality.&nbsp;</p> <p><a href="http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2014/04/17/building-our-progress-solar-deployment" target="_blank">read more</a></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-link field-field-url"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Story URL:&nbsp;</div> <a href="http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2014/04/17/building-our-progress-solar-deployment" target="_blank">http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2014/04/17/building-our-progress-solar-deployment</a> </div> </div> </div> <a href= Arizona Arizona Dan Utech Energy and Environment Official The President United States United States White House Thu, 17 Apr 2014 13:40:16 +0000 feed 270048 at http://newsmotion.org Reforming America's Job-Driven Training Programs http://newsmotion.org/feed-story-en/reforming-americas-job-driven-training-programs <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Reforming America&#039;s Job-Driven Training Programs </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-datetime field-field-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Wed, 04/16/2014</span> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p></p> <p class="rteright"><a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Baje3cL88HI">Watch on YouTube</a></p> <p>In <a href="http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2014/01/28/president-barack-obamas-state-union-address">this year&#39;s State of the Union address</a>, President Obama announced that Vice President Biden would lead a reform of America&#39;s job training programs, making sure that these programs&nbsp;&quot;train Americans with the skills employers need, and match them to good jobs that need to be filled right now.&quot;</p> <p>This afternoon, the President and Vice President visited the Community College of Allegheny County in&nbsp;Oakdale, Pennsylvania to announce progress on that reform.</p> <p><a href="http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2014/04/16/reforming-americas-job-driven-training-programs" target="_blank">read more</a></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-link field-field-url"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Story URL:&nbsp;</div> <a href="http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2014/04/16/reforming-americas-job-driven-training-programs" target="_blank">http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2014/04/16/reforming-americas-job-driven-training...</a> </div> </div> </div> <a href= Barack Obama David Hudson David Lienemann Jobs Joe Biden Oakdale Official Pennsylvania Pennsylvania Penny Pritzker Stephanie Womack The President The Vice President White House Zach Kuzma Thu, 17 Apr 2014 00:38:14 +0000 feed 269441 at http://newsmotion.org Vice President Biden Joins Instagram http://newsmotion.org/feed-story-en/vice-president-biden-joins-instagram <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Vice President Biden Joins Instagram </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-datetime field-field-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Wed, 04/16/2014</span> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Today, we&rsquo;re excited to announce the Office of the Vice President is&nbsp;<a href="http://instagram.com/vp">joining Instagram</a>&nbsp;to give followers a unique look inside the Vice Presidency.
