Did you know that the amount of energy from the sun that falls to the earth in one day could supply the entire world’s energy needs for 27 years? While there’s enough solar capacity installed in the U.S. to power 4 million American households, there remains plenty of room for growth.
We believe every day is an opportunity to celebrate solar power, but today is a particularly important day as people across the U.S. participate in “National Shout Out For Solar Day.”
Today’s the day to show your support for solar energy and send an important message to policymakers nationwide.
To get involved, follow these instructions from the Solar Energy Industries Association:
- Download and print your sign. Take a picture of you holding your sign.
- Upload your picture to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and use the hashtag #GoSolar.
- Finally, join the Thunderclap so your tweet or post goes out on January 16!
