  • Reflection Question
    Electricity Advocate for Solar Installation
    How does advocating for rooftop solar connect to your values? How might you be able to get others involved in advocating for the shift to clean energy?

    80% of my home energy needs are currently supported by rooftop solar panels - using this as a talking point for fiscal and environmental benefits for my neighbors could make for easy advocate-led conversations.
