Since 2002, Vote Solar has been working to make solar affordable and accessible to more Americans. We work at the state level all across the country to support the policies and programs needed to repower our grid with clean energy.

Vote Solar is proud to be nonpartisan, neither supporting nor opposing candidates or political parties at any level of government, but always working to expand access to clean solar energy.

Vote Solar’s approach to advocacy combines deep technical and policy expertise with public education and mobilization. We build both the fact-based case and the political will needed to accelerate solar progress.

Technical Expertise 

Energy policy – particularly at the forefront of our clean energy transition – is a complex and dynamic arena. Our technical experts help regulators and other policymakers understand policy options, make the case for strong program and regulatory design, and implement the programs that are going to most effectively support diverse and sustainable solar growth.

Public Engagement 

The American people overwhelmingly support solar energy, a powerful fact that remains true across state and party lines – but the policy and regulatory processes deciding our solar future are remarkably inaccessible to the general public. Our campaign and communications teams work to give our solar-loving public a strong voice in these critical policy decisions through press, social media and grassroots mobilization.

Coalition Building

We aim to transform one of this country’s most powerful industries in states nationwide, and we can’t do it alone. We make the most of our skills and limited resources by collaborating with local and national partners wherever possible. From our position as an independent solar advocacy group, Vote Solar has an important role to play in bringing diverse interests together toward the common goal of solar growth.
