SEIA Turns 40 -- Shout Out For Solar!

Originally posted on Clean Energy Future

Today SEIA, along with the more than 1,000 member companies, celebrates the association’s 40th anniversary. With over 12 years in the solar industry, I can say it is amazing to see all that we have accomplished so far:

  • 13 GW of total solar capacity installed in the USA
  • 2 million American homes are now powered by solar
  • 400,000 individual solar installations
  • 30% growth in U.S. solar energy industry is being forecast for 2014, with new job growth also expected
  • 120,000 people employed by the U.S. solar industry at more than 6,000 American businesses
  • 4 GW of PV solar installed in 2013, surpassing Germany for the first time ever
  • 40 years of solar advocacy by the Solar Energy Industry Association of America!

The U.S. solar industry certainly has plenty to celebrate today, so today has been declared a national “Shout Out for Solar” Day!

Let your friends, family and followers know that you support clean, affordable solar power. Here’s how to participate:

  1. Download and print a #GoSolar sign or make your own!
  2. Take your picture holding it.
  3. Upload your picture to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and use the hashtag #GoSolar. We'll find it!
  4. You can see all the photos on Storify!

As you can see, not only does the Recurrent Energy team support solar, but so does this guy.
