About Vote Solar
Vote Solar’s mission is to realize a 100% clean energy future through a solutions-driven, people first approach. Founded in 2002, Vote Solar advances just and equitable clean energy policy in state legislatures and public commissions across the United States. Their expertise comes from a deep understanding of the legislative process, regulatory interventions, and the ability to identify and accelerate solar solutions. Vote Solar is adept at bridging communities and bringing diverse stakeholders together to forge inclusive coalitions and winning campaigns.
Vote Solar’s goal is to effect real, tangible change. Twenty years in, their work has made it so that one in three people live in a state with a 100% clean energy commitment. They strive not only to expand that number but also to ensure that more people can participate in holding utilities and decision-makers accountable for greater equity and justice in our energy system.
The fact that solar energy is plentiful, popular, and has a unique ability to shift power to the people is the key to Vote Solar’s winning combination of deep policy expertise, regulatory knowledge, coalition building, and public engagement to help build a strong, just, and inclusive 100% powered future.
