Be bold and make a positive impact! Tell your boss you want solar at work.

You are making a positive environmental impact at home but its not enough! NOW is the time to do it at work. The changes your business makes has a larger scale and scope than the ones you make at home. So what are you waiting for?! Take a stand for the environment while helping your company cut its usage of dirty energy! Urge your boss to make an investment in it's employees and the planet, through solar.

According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, over 50% of the hours you spend awake are at work. Unfortunately, companies are prioritizing other expenditures over ones that impact their employees. While some companies have implemented significant sustainability measures, none have the impact that solar does. Recycled paper, LED lighting, power cords, light sensors and low flush toilets are great, but they don’t affect your immediate environment with the same impact or scale that solar energy does. Greenzu, a solar company that works with small businesses & non-profits, estimates that "US businesses can spare the air 5.164 billion tons of CO2 through solar", creating a global impact.

Large corporation or small business -- this affects you equally! Share a building? Get your co-workers on the side of solar, approach your boss and get your boss to speak with other businesses in the same building. It takes cohesiveness and numbers to persuade a landlord to go solar. And it starts with you!

Your vote counts! Tell your boss that you want your organization to lead the way in the solar movement. Solar reduces your company's carbon footprint, boosts employee morale and saves money. Go solar now!

      Dear landlord

      Please don’t dismiss my case

      I’m not about to argue

      I’m not about to move to no other place.
