2014 was a year of tremendous growth for the U.S. solar industry. Today, there’s an estimated 20 gigawatts (GW) of installed capacity in the United States – enough to power 4 million American homes, or every home in a state the size of Massachusetts or New Jersey.
This unprecedented growth is helping to create tens of thousands of American jobs, save hundreds of millions of dollars for U.S. consumers and businesses, and reduce pollution nationwide. And, frankly, we’re just scratching the surface of our industry’s enormous potential.
To help celebrate this remarkable progress, lay the foundation for an even brighter future and send an important message to policymakers nationwide, we need to show the world how much public support this crucial technology enjoys. Help us spread the word by shouting #GoSolar from the rooftops on January 16th!
