Just a quick “head’s up:” The full House will debate the Solar Technology Roadmap Act (HR 3585) on Thursday, October 22, according to a news release issued by Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

The bill, sponsored by Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ), would establish a group of experts picked by Secretary of Energy Steven Chu and drawn from government, industry and academia. The “Roadmap Committee” would guide government-private spending, authorized at $2 billion, for solar R&D.

More to come.
