Mosaic Encourages People To “Put Solar On It” For The New Year

December 25th, 2013 by  

Mosaic has started a New Year’s resolution campaign for 2014. It is motivating people to pledge to put solar systems on their own houses, schools, businesses, places of worship, and other places.

PutSolarOnItWebPageThis works by entering the name and location of the place you want to install panels as well as your e-mail address on the “Put Solar On It” website. Then, Mosaic will send you more information about how you can go about having solar panels installed.

Mark Ruffalo (he played The Hulk in The Avengers) and Brad Pitt are participating too.

According to a press release sent to CleanTechnica, Ruffalo said:

I’m helping put solar on my kids’ school to save the school money and free up resources that will be aimed at their education instead of fossil fuels.

We can also demonstrate the shining future that is now within our grasp. I love that Mosaic is making it possible for all people to participate in an economy meant for all — the solar economy. We are powerful.

That was inspiring. Hopefully, all of this contributes to the already significant momentum the solar industry in the US has gained. The solar industry is growing so quickly, that this year, a solar system was installed every four minutes in the US.

“The “Put Solar On It” resolution is part of significant national momentum. In 2013, a solar installation was installed every four minutes throughout the US and the price of a solar dropped to 60% of 2011 prices, according to the US Solar Energy Industries Association and Greentech Media Research. The nation installed more clean energy than coal, oil, and nuclear combined, according to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. According to the Solar Foundation and U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the solar industry is creating jobs at four times the rate of the economy at large.”

    When a true value solar system install results in the house being structurally damaged:

      Yeah. Sometimes people screw up.

      Thanks for your concern…..

    I feel like a heel. I never sign pledges. Beside my house has had panels for four years, my place of work now has panels (although they only apply about ten percent of our juice). My town’s two highschools have 3MW for PV parking lot shades….

    Yet, most homest, and nearly 100% of businesses do not have solar. But, I don’t feel I have any traction in the decision making process.
