Why New England Needs More Solar Energy

Bethany Kwoka

We all know that climate change is a huge problem. From more severe storms to prolonged heat waves, climate change is here and it’s happening now. Luckily, clean energy solutions like solar panels can help both our planet and our economy.

In the last five years, the amount of power generated by solar panels has grown rapidly around the U.S. – including right here in New England!

But needless barriers stand in the way – and they’re being put up by those who profit from the status quo: Big Utilities. But don’t let them fool you. Solar is a common-sense solution to a New England-wide problem.

Help us spread the truth about solar. Watch and share our video on how home solar energy works, and why we need more of it.

And, don’t forget to add your name to our fight for solar petition today.

Before you go… CLF is working every day to create real, systemic change for New England’s environment. And we can’t solve these big problems without people like you. Will you be a part of this movement by considering a contribution today? If everyone reading our blog gave just $10, we’d have enough money to fund our legal teams for the next year.
