Solar Action Alliance
Solar Action Alliance is a large group of like-minded people who are concerned about the environment and what the world will be like in the future if nothing is done to conserve its energy sources. Solar energy is available freely, it’s abundant, it’s clean, it’s reliable and what is the most important thing it’s renewable energy from the sun. Far less of the world’s resources are depleted to supply energy if the sun is used to fulfill our insatiable demand for it.
