The best billboard for solar power is a solar panel. People are captivated and inspired by solar panels quietly at work producing clean energy. Last month, Americans saw tens of thousands of these billboards through almost 600 American Solar Energy Society (ASES) tours of homes, municipal buildings and businesses in 38 states, each demonstrating the use of clean, affordable solar power.
Americans have consistently expressed widespread support for solar power and for state and federal policies promoting its greater use. According to a recent Hart Research poll released by the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), 92 percent of likely American voters favor solar energy and want to see solar as a growing part of the nation’s energy mix. Democrats, Republicans and Independents, young and old, men and women — across all regions of the country, all support solar energy.
