Solar Energy Across the Country

Posted by Infra on Monday, December 27th, 2010

Following the sun across the nation, we see first-hand how solar is working for America and meet today’s solar generation: the project developers, manufacturers, installers and of course, the clients – the people who are using solar power in its various forms for their homes, businesses and public buildings. This 4-minute film highlights the Solar Generation USA Road Trip as the team discovers how widespread solar energy has become from the East Coast across the Midwest to the West Coast. Learn more about the role solar plays at a boat marina, fire station, New York City rooftop and the Crayola Crayon manufacturing plant, a zoo (with ‘solar bears’), a gas station converted to a solar charging station for electric vehicles; and see how solar is putting people to work at a manufacturing site and a solar rooftop installation in the West; features a Crayola Crayon factory, Denver International Airport, a Garbett Homes community where solar comes standard, Colorado State University, the San Francisco Giant’s ballpark and a Napa Valley vineyard. Learn more and take the solar quiz to win a limited-edition tour cap. Visit
