Celebrating One Million Solar Installations

Guest Blog | May 3, 2016 | Energy Policy, Solar

They say the first million is the hardest… Based on the increasing rate of solar installations coupled with the continuously decreasing cost of solar, we’re thinking that saying is true when it comes to solar, and we are SO excited for what’s ahead!

Today we are joining thousands of individuals and organizations across the country to celebrate #MillionSolarStrong – a social media celebration of one million completed solar installations in the USA. This is an important milestone, one marked with incredible advances in technology and an optimistic look towards the future. These first million have been a fascinating ride through what has been a trailblazing journey of market changes, policy challenges, and an incredible opportunity to provide clean, affordable solar energy for people throughout America.

It’s inspiring to think of all the lives that have already been changed for the better because of solar. Thousands of jobs have been created, local economies revitalized, energy costs lowered – The word “SOLAR” has gone from an environmentalist pipe dream to a mainstream reality. Today is worth celebrating.

In that spirit, enjoy these pictures that some of the SACE staff and supporters have taken, and remember that the best is yet to come! May this day motivate us to move together towards even more millions of solar installations, and at a much quicker rate than the first!
