Earth Month and Beyond

21 May 2015 2:31 PM | Anonymous

ISEA rocked Earth Month and beyond! Since the beginning of April, ISEA volunteers and Solar Ambassadors, Policy Committee and Staff have participated in over 30 events!


ISEA Solar Ambassadors have supported and participated in over 20 events and educated an estimated 2,195 people on the advantages of being powered by the sun! Solar Ambassadors are ISEA members who advocate for solar energy and engage with the public to increase awareness, understanding, support and use of clean energy. The Solar Ambassadors spread the word about the Illinois Clean Jobs Bill at all of these events.

The ISEA Policy Committee teamed up with the Solar Ambassadors to host six Legislative Solar Socials at homes powered by solar this spring. Attendees had the opportunity to meet Illinois Clean Jobs Bill co-sponsors, view a solar installation and learn about the benefits of living with renewable energy! ISEA held events in Evanston, Chicago, Joliet, West Chicago, Wilmette and Champaign.
