Go Solar

Millions of people are already powering their lives with clean, renewable energy from the sun.




Residential and community solar systems are spreading across the country, from the sun-soaked roofs of the rural southwest to neighborhoods in Massachusetts.

With the costs of solar power plummeting, solar is now the fastest growing energy source worldwide. More than 1.5 million households in the U.S. have already gone solar—and every 90 seconds another one joins the ranks. These homeowners are producing local energy, promoting energy independence, and reducing pollution and carbon emissions in their communities—all while saving money on their utility bills.

Solar power strengthens our local economies, not only providing savings on energy costs but creating good jobs: since 2010 the U.S. has gained nearly 150,000 solar jobs—a 159% increase. The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that over the next decade, “solar installer” will be the fastest growing job in America.

The solar revolution represents a profound shift in how we power our lives, and it’s rapidly transforming our energy system from an endless cycle of mining, drilling, refining, and polluting into one powered by clean, renewable energy.
