An organization in Ann Arbor, Michigan started a campaign focused on getting the largest football stadium in North America, the University of Michigan’s Michigan Stadium (aka “The Big House”), to go solar. The organization, The Ecology Center, has teamed up with Change.org to try to get more people behind the effort. So far, over 3,000 have signed a petition to power The Big House with solar.

“What these activists have accomplished is really impressive,” said Jess Leber, a senior organizer for Change.org, the world’s fastest-growing platform for social change. “In just a few weeks, the Ecology Center has inspired thousands of University of Michigan community members to make their voices heard on solar energy. Change.org is about empowering anyone, anywhere to demand action on the issues that matter to them, and it has been incredible to watch the Ecology Center’s campaign take off.”
