Increasingly more economical and cleaner solar power is being celebrated after a banner growth year by the industry. Friday is “Shout Out for Solar Day” organized by the Solar Energy Industries Association. While the industry has its detractors for competition with coal and for perceived inefficiencies, solar or photovoltaic energy has created nearly 120,000 jobs. Per the SEIA, the United States now has enough PV power installed to power 2-million homes!
The trade group is using this day to kick off its America Loves Solar campaign. Because collecting energy from the sun allows for production of electricity without pollution, solar helps slow the rate of climate change.
