Occupy Rooftops: Nov. 20 Community Solar Action Day

On November 20th, Open Neighborhoods is partnering with Solar Mosaic and organizations across the country to hold Community Solar Day.

Community Solar Day is a time for people to come together at a building they want to help go solar and start creating local jobs and clean energy through a community solar project. We’ll compile the photos of hundreds of people around the world kickstarting their projects and spread the message that community solar is here to stay.

Most Los Angeles County residents and businesses are not able to install a solar system because they don’t own a rooftop.  But there are plenty of non-profits, churches and schools with big roofs in LA County neighborhoods that are perfect for a community solar project. Solar is the fastest growing industry in America and now employs more Americans than both coal and steel.  Who wouldn’t want local solar power generated in their own community?

Sign-up today at www.openneighborhoods.net/communitysolar and we’ll provide you with all the resources you need to start a beautiful, job-producing solar project in your community.

Get involved to participate in Occupy Rooftops on November 20th, and help your community thrive with clean, renewable energy from the Sun!
