With the interest and demand for wider adoption of renewable energy, solar energy is one of the fastest growing industries in the US, generating an estimated 13 gigawatts (GW) of clean renewable electricity and effectively employing 120,000 workers.

“This is a banner day for solar energy in America. Today’s events, including the launch of our America Supports Solar website, captures that excitement in a big way. In recent years, our industry has created tens of thousands of new American jobs, pumped billions of dollars into the U.S. economy and helped to reduce pollution. We’re a true American success story.” – Rhone Resch, SEIA president and CEO

Today you can show your support for solar energy in the US, by participating in the National Shout Out for Solar Day. To take part in this show of solidarity for solar, download one of the #GoSolar signs (PDF) from the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) website, take a picture of you holding your sign, and then upload it to Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram, and use the hashtag #GoSolar.

The SEIA will find your picture and display it, along with those of all of the other solar supporters, on their Storify page.
