We are excited to launch New Energy Colorado as the new name of a 25-year old nonprofit formerly known as Golden Earth Days. The new name reflects our plan to help educate Coloradans about the exciting energy transition underway as we turn more toward renewable sources such as solar and wind, and toward a more decentralized and interactive energy system. We hope you will join us and check back often as we announce events and other plans on our blog!
The U.S. hit a huge milestone this spring, registering the millionth solar installation. We celebrated with #MillionSolarStrong messages that exceeded 100 million on twitter alone. This milestone shows that solar is really moving into the mainstream of U.S. energy supplies. While it took nearly 40 years to reach this goal, the next million solar installations may come in less than two years! Read the declaration here
