MILLION SOLAR ROOFS:
The Department of Energy invites your comments on this Action Plan.Please submit comments to
Million Solar Roofs is an initiative to install solar energy systems on one million U.S. buildings by 2010. It was announced by President Clinton on June 26, 1997 in his speech before the United Nations Session on Environment and Development. This effort includes two types of solar technology; photovoltaics that produce electricity from sunlight and solar thermal panels that produce heat for domestic hot water, space heating or swimming pools.
The U.S. Department of Energy will work with partners in the building industry, other Federal agencies, utilities, the solar energy industry, financial institutions, state and local governments, and non-governmental organizations to remove market barriers to solar energy use and develop and strengthen demand for solar energy products and applications. The Initiative will not direct and control the activities at the state and local level nor will it typically pay for the installation of solar energy systems. Instead, the Million Solar Roofs Initiative will bring together the capabilities of the Federal government with key businesses, state and local governments and organizations and focus them on building a strong market for solar energy applications on buildings.
