Indie Lens Pop-Up ~ Jonathan Scott’s Power Trip
- Virtual Event -- Access Info Below
The key to environmentally friendly, cost-effective renewable energy is shining down upon us. In sun-soaked Las Vegas, Property Brothers’ Jonathan Scott harnesses that power by installing solar panels on his own home. But when his local public utility commission takes every possible opportunity to suppress that type of competition, Jonathan sets out to answer “Why don’t more Americans have the choice to go solar?” On his journey to learn about clean energy, Jonathan talks with members of the Navajo Nation, who built a utility-scale solar plant; farmers struggling to make ends meet in Georgia; coal workers ready for new, clean jobs in Kentucky; religious leaders fighting to meet their community’s energy needs in North Carolina; and politicians at the forefront of the battle for renewable energy throughout the country.
