Seriously?

Yes. Seriously.

Hope…


While solar power is among the least expensive, cleanest, most abundant sources of energy on earth, retrofitting a home with panels requires the right roof and a big bank account.

Community solar has the power to change that and bring clean energy to all homes regardless of architecture and income.

Add your name to support a Greater Grid if you believe…

    • We need a more equitable energy system where access to affordable, renewable energy doesn’t depend on socioeconomic status.
    • All people should have the opportunity to benefit from affordable, renewable energy solutions like community solar.
    • Burning fossil fuels jeopardizes the health of millions — disproportionately BIPOC communities.

Community solar gives us the opportunity to democratize the solar revolution. Instead of rooftop installation, residents simply subscribe to a solar farm in their area at no added upfront cost and savings down the road. As their solar farm generates energy, residents save money on their bills and help add more clean energy to the local power supply.

It’s good for the planet and local community.

Sign here in support of the Greater Grid — community solar in your community!

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition demanding justice for Daunte Wright, and be sure to follow OD Action on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
