ESRAG INITIATIVE

Million Solar Panels

Empowering Rotarians to combat climate change, reduce energy costs, and collectively offset millions of tonnes of CO2 emissions, all while leading the way towards a sustainable future.

WHAT IS IT?

Fighting climate change one solar panel at a time.

The Million Solar Panels initiative is a campaign to encourage Rotarians to purchase solar panels in order to impact climate change and at the same time reduce their power bills. The rapid transition to Renewable Energy is needed to stop a Climate Crisis. We can wait for our governments to take action or Rotarians can lead the way.

Did you know that if every Rotarian installed one (400 watt) solar panel this would:

Be equivalent to planting 14 million mature trees;
Save >$5 billion dollars in electricity bills;
Stop > 10 million tonnes of CO2 being released.

MILLION SOLAR PANELS

Rotarians Deploy Solar Panels 

Rotarians’ response to the challenge of Planting a Million Trees was inspiring. “Planting” solar panels has an even greater positive impact on our environment.

How to get involved? 

  • Encourage Rotarians to invest in solar panels for themselves or for others.
  • Document how many solar panels Rotarians have already purchased.
  • Encourage Rotary Clubs to become Climate friendly and invest in solar to offset their carbon footprint.
  • Educate neighbors about the advantages of renewable energy.
  • When 1.4 million Rotarians act together they can lead the world to a brighter future.
