The world over, governments have cushioned their citizens against the economic challenges by budgeting for stimulus packages. Furthermore, realizing the impact fossil fuel has had on the environment, particularly the air quality that exacerbated the impacts COVID19 has had on communities, many governments are choosing to divest to renewable energy to build back better sustainable communities.
