Help Americans go solar! Sign the Solar Bill of Rights today.
SEIA    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The Solar Bill of Rights are eight rights that encompass the promise of solar energy in the United States. The Solar Bill of Rights means no more restrictive homeowner associations telling families that they cannot install solar. It means a fair competitive playing field with other sources of energy like oil, gas, and coal. And it means that all Americans have the right to buy solar electricity from their utility. Realizing these and the other rights enumerated in the Solar Bill of Rights (Read the full list of rights) will finally bring the solar industry to the forefront of American energy, which so many of us have been working toward for years. If you have signed, please forward along to your colleagues, suppliers, dealers, and clients. This is our way to tell policy makers that it is time for a level playing field for the solar industry.
