Dear Colleague,

As co-chairs of the bipartisan Congressional Solar Caucus, we invite you to join us in the 116th Congress.

According to The Solar Foundation, employment in the solar industry has grown by 168% since 2010.  In 2017, more than 10,000 companies in every U.S. state employed over 250,000 American workers in the solar industry.  Over the past five years,
one out of every 100 new jobs was a solar job.  The cost to install solar power has decreased by more than 70% since 2010, helping to spur economic development and decrease our dependence on foreign oil.

Now, more than ever, it is essential that Congress recognize the expansion in this industry and identify both opportunities and challenges for American workers, our environment, and the strength of our economy.

In the 116th Congress, the Solar Caucus will continue to serve as a forum for Members and staff to discuss high priority issues relating to the renewable energy and solar technology production sectors.  The caucus was formed so that policymakers,
business leaders, and academic experts can work together to strengthen job creation and increase investments in renewable energy and solar technology production.  

If you would like to join the bipartisan Solar Caucus, or if you have any questions, please contact Hillary Caron ( with Rep. Krishnamoorthi or Meghan Holland (
with Rep. Norman.
