Solar power

The future of solar energy is bright and it will help us power our lives with clean, renewable energy.

Every year, enough sunlight shines on America to provide 100 times more power than we need. We’re only capturing a tiny percentage of it, but that’s changing. More Americans are going solar every day, which is helping to bring down costs, and improve the technology. Already enough solar capacity has been installed to power the equivalent of more than 15 million homes. Together we can harness more of the sun’s energy, and have cleaner air, a more stable climate, more resilient communities and a brighter future.
