Vote Solar was founded in 2002 with the mission of bringing solar energy to the mainstream. 

A transition to clean energy has the power to address some of the most critical economic, social and environmental challenges facing our nation. Solar energy is ready to help speed that transition. It is our fastest growing electricity source, but we have still just scratched the surface of our vast solar potential.

State of play:

Americans overwhelmingly support clean energy, but we’ve long been dependent on a centralized energy system and entrenched fossil interests that have proven resistant to move toward clean energy. Affordable solar power is changing all that. Massive solar cost declines are driving a rooftop revolution that has put consumers in the clean energy driver’s seat. This paradigm shift is bringing tremendous opportunity to drive monumental positive change in our energy system, but it’s also sparked a backlash from traditional power players.

Fossil interests are pouring massive resources into undermining our states’ solar policy pillars and stalling continued clean energy progress. They may have money and lobbyists, but we have proven that we can win these fights with the facts and the power of the people on our side.
