SolarDay 2010

[social_buttons]

I have to say, I didn’t know there was a “SolarDay” until recently, but I guess that is partly because it wasn’t founded until 2009. Nonetheless, it has already grown into a worldwide event.

SolarDay is celebrated on a weekend day before the Summer Solstice (the longest day of the year), which will be Saturday, June 19th, this year.

Last year, more than 700 media stories were written about SolarDay. I imagine there will be more than that this year.

As you might expect, SolarDay is about promoting solar energy and energy independence. But it goes beyond that in that it promotes clean, green energy in general and sustainable lifestyles as well.

With new solar group discount opportunities popping up around the country, perhaps this is the week you have been waiting for to get solar on your home or business.

For more about SolarDay or this year’s events, visit SolarDay’s website.

You can also check out this video on San Francisco’s 2009 SolarDay event as a primer for this year’s SolarDay:
