And that growth isn’t driving the collapse of coal mining, according to Abigail Hopper, the recently hired chief executive officer of the Solar Energy Industries Association.

Hi Adriaan,

"...the rural areas that missed out on economic growth under President Barack Obama..."

Are you suggesting that it was due to President Obama? If you wanted to suggest that, that is fine by me (although I doubt it's accuracy). If you did not want to suggest that, you may reconsider the way you state this, since it is misleading.
