If you’re a fan of solar energy, today is the perfect day to share the love! Jan. 24 is National Shout Out for Solar Day, and it’s time to join your friends, family, and coworkers in shouting #GoSolar from the rooftops!
According to the Solar Energy Industries Association, 2013 will go down as a record-shattering year for the U.S. solar industry. We’ve now joined Germany, China and Japan as worldwide leaders when it comes to the installation of new solar capacity.
This unprecedented growth is helping to create thousands of American jobs, save money for U.S. consumers and reduce pollution nationwide, and we’re only just scratching the surface of the industry’s enormous potential!
Today, solar is one of the fastest-growing industries in America, employing 120,000 workers and generating an estimated 13 gigawatts (GW) of clean electricity – enough to effectively power 2 million homes.
Here’s how to participate in giving a shout-out to solar energy today:
1. Take a picture with these signs
2. Upload your picture to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and use the hashtag #GoSolar
Then, join the Thunderclap so your tweet or post goes out on Jan. 24!
