Go Solar

Every year, enough sunlight shines on our country to provide 100 times more power than we need. But only a fraction of it is being captured and stored. We’re calling for solutions to help more Americans go solar.

America produced enough solar energy to power 19 million homes in 2022 – nearly 12 times as much solar energy as in 2013. That’s impressive growth — but it’s nowhere close to solar’s potential. 

Harnessing more energy from the sun would mean cleaner air and a more stable climate, less strain on natural resources, and an energy source we can depend on to be virtually pollution-free for as long as we can imagine. So what can we do to help America get there?

We’re challenging cities, states, corporations and more to think bigger, act smarter, and tap into the sun for more power. We’re calling for stronger pro-solar policies, and to reject attempts to make it harder for Americans to go solar. And we’re calling for ambitious energy storage targets to drive the growth we need.

And if you want to see more solar panels go up on roofs in your community, you can help make your state a solar leader by taking action on our campaigns today.
