Mickey Mouse-shaped solar farm

Even Disney World is going solar. Find out why solar is the fastest-growing energy source in the U.S. and could work well for you.

Dear MoveOn member,

Solar power is so mainstream that last week a giant Mickey Mouse-shaped solar farm starting powering Walt Disney World.1

It's near Epcot Center, and the plant produces enough energy to power 1,000 homes.

Surprised Disney World is going solar? You shouldn't be, because solar is the fastest-growing energy source in America, and it's now cost competitive with fossil fuels in many places across the country.2

If you've ever considered going solar, we want to help. MoveOn has partnered with an innovative solar company, Sungevity, that makes going solar easy for homeowners.

Here's how it works: If you sign up for information, Sungevity will call you and walk you through the options, based on satellite mapping of your home and information about your energy use. They handle all of the details and have different financing options, including 0% down.

Click here now to connect to Sungevity and see if solar panels are right for your home. If you make the switch via MoveOn, Sungevity will give you a $750 discount on your solar system.

Sungevity designs, installs, helps finance, and manages solar systems. They help figure out a way for your family to go solar, reduce your impact on the environment, and quite possibly save money at the same time.

And by going solar with Sungevity, you'd also support MoveOn's campaigns for clean energy and to fight climate change, because Sungevity would put $750 into our campaign work. Sungevity is a company that gives back. They've raised more than $1.5 million to support their nonprofit partners, which now include MoveOn.3
