Solar: Unlimited Energy for the Sunshine State, SSJ’s latest entry into free educational programs is off to a rousing welcome by citizens interested in understanding the importance of renewal energy sources to the health of our economy, environment, and indeed, the entire planet. Presentations of this 30 minute leader-led, PowerPoint presentation on Solar Energy as a clean and unlimited source of power for now and the future have been offered since August and are now in full swing, with presentations being being scheduled well into 2017.

Solar: Unlimited Energy for the Sunshine State was developed by members of the same development team as the highly successful Water Works: Stand Up and Act Now! introduced in November of 2015. Feedback on Solar thus far has been excellent, with attendees saying how much they learned about how solar and fossil fuels (as energy sources) differ; how solar can help save money and the environment; the different types of solar systems, and why it’s important to vote NO in NOvember on Amendment 1.

Solar: Unlimited Energy for the Sunshine State is available to anyone wishing to learn more about the importance of solar energy to the future of our society and the planet. A working PowerPoint version and Presenter Guidelines of this program can also be made available to any Sierra Club Chapter, Group or Working Group in Florida who wishes to present it in their own region, by contacting Jon Brainard, SSJ Education Chair at or (407) 491.8158. You may also schedule the program to be presented directly to your group by contacting Jon to arrange dates. Full-color, two-sided tri-fold brochures are also available to help advertise this important program.
