The internets sure do move in mysterious ways.
In 2010, as part of a campaign to get a big piece of solar policy over the finish line in New York, we got a billboard near the capitol and crowd-sourced pro-solar messages.
One of the winning tag-lines was contributed by Colin Murchie (who works for SolarCity and is one of the funnier people in the solar business–or any business, for that matter):
“When there is a huge solar energy spill, it’s called a ‘nice day’”.
For some reason, it’s recently gone viral. We’ve seen it pop up all over the internet. And people are asking us if they can use it for their own purposes.
So here’s the deal. After consultation with the phrase’s originator, we are going to assert a Creative Commons copyright, for attribution and non-commercial purposes. That is to say, you can use it for non-commercial purposes, with attribution to Vote Solar.
Under these terms, go forth and spread the solar love.
Stay tuned for t-shirts and bumper stickers with the message. Working on them.
