American families, businesses, and communities are all going solar because it saves them money and adds predictability during these difficult times. In addition to generating local tax revenue, solar cuts electricity costs. This can help small businesses stay afloat and can help schools direct funds to teacher salaries and classroom upgrades.
I want to share our vision for the next decade, and more specifically, for our new President-elect. It goes without saying that this is an exciting time to be in the solar industry. We are now 32x bigger than we were a decade ago and this $18 billion industry supports American families in every state. Solar is a job-creating engine with bipartisan support and helps to bring clean, affordable electricity to millions.
