Putting Solar on the White House is really cooking now. Having surpassed the 5,000-signature benchmark, we’ve introduced a breakthrough new aspect to the campaign. Power the House, an innovative social media game engine enables everybody to become a Solar on the White House advocate. By spreading the word through various social media outlets participants can earn points towards cool Globama schwag (T-shirts, Solios and solar bags).

Additionally, some new partners have joined our ranks:

Solar Nation:  Solar Nation will speak up to advance the use of renewable – especially solar – energy by encouraging policy change, informing political leaders and candidates about solar power, and helping to shape policy platforms at the local, state and federal level. Solar Nation will also speak out, not only against the competing use of dirty and dangerous fossil fuels or nuclear power, but also in opposition to lobby-influenced legislation or policy that favors such energy choices.

Clean Techies: CleanTechies is a leading green career site & environmental business network on clean technology. It provides insight, orientation, and opportunities for the Clean Tech community. CleanTechies focuses on renewable energy, resource efficiency, green building, and sustainable transportation.

(These new partners are joining: Sungevity, Solar Energy Industry Association, Renewable Energy World, Scott Sklar, A Road Not Taken, PostCarbon.org, 350.org, Grist, ThingFo and Grow Marketing.)

Let’s Power the House!
