While November is a traditional time to celebrate our veteran’s military service, it’s also a good time to lift up the contribution to the community so many make after their service is complete.

For generations, America’s farmers have used the sun to provide for their communities and support the growth of the country. Today, with the help of solar and storage technologies, agricultural communities are delivering both the food that powers our bodies and the clean energy that powers our economy.
By convening key stakeholders and developing flexible land use solutions, this initiative is bound to deliver the economic, social, and ecological benefits of solar power to communities across the county.
America’s solar and storage industry is experiencing rapid growth. Today the industry supports the livelihoods of more than 263,000 workers, and our workforce is expected to double in size over the next decade to nearly half a million jobs.
In many communities, hospitals, places of worship, and recreation centers play a vital role in bringing people together and helping in times of need. Now, community centers are turning to solar and storage to provide power and are exploring new solar savings and benefit-sharing models along the way.
America’s solar and storage industry is — by any metric — booming. While this growth has been quick, it has not been haphazard. This expansion is underpinned by the industry’s steadfast commitment to purposeful, proactive growth.
