Solutions Journalism Network

Solutions journalism is news about how communities and organizations are responding to social and environmental problems. This collection contains solutions stories that demonstrate that solar panels are a reliable, affordable, and clean alternative to fossil fuels. In Zimbabwe, rooftop solar is being deployed to provide reliable energy at health clinics. Solar energy will also be almost entirely powering innovative new construction projects in Utah, Minnesota, and Florida. As climate change begins to intensify the severity of natural disasters, localized microgrids are also being viewed as a climate adaptation strategy. A start-up company is bringing solar panels to Puerto Rico and California impacted by disaster, supplying clean energy within a day where it is most needed. By putting the power of energy into the hands of the people, rooftop solar panels are sure to lead the clean energy revolution.
