The #MillionSolarStrong campaign is gaining widespread support with more than 70 organizations signing an official declaration favoring a strong role for solar energy as a part of America’s energy portfolio. The campaign is a recognition that the solar industry has raced past 1 million solar systems in the United States and is rapidly accelerating toward 2 million.
The million solar systems now installed in the United States provide enough electricity to power the entire state of Pennsylvania, according to a report issued by the George Washington Solar Institute. The report is timed with the solar community’s launch of the #MillionSolarStrong campaign, which celebrates the fact that the industry has raced past a million installations and is rapidly accelerating toward 2 million.
