Shining Cities

Solar power is on the rise across America—increasing 200-fold in the United States since 2002—and major cities are helping to lead this clean energy revolution. Shining Cities: At the Forefront of America’s Solar Energy Revolution shows that cities from every region of the U.S. are driving solar development with strong public policies – reaping important benefits for the environment, public health, and the economy. By building local solar power, cities can keep more of their energy budget at home and create good local jobs.

Moving America Forward

Moving America Forward highlights the important progress America has already made reducing emissions through a series of clean energy and climate policies. Specifically, it quantifies the amount of carbon pollution that was prevented in 2012 by steps taken to implement a specific set of clean energy policies at both the state and federal levels since 2007. This report shows that state leadership can directly reduce carbon pollution, while also laying a foundation for national action, which can deliver significant additional cuts in carbon pollution.
