About Us

National Council for Solar Growth

We are a non profit group with a mission to educate homeowners and businesses about the economic and environmental benefits of PV solar. Our primary objective is to influence a greater number of solar panel installations on homes, schools, and businesses across the US and the rest of the world at an accelerating pace.

We don’t accept advertising and while both national brands as well as regional and local installers are promoted on EvergreenSolar.com our aim is solely to connect the homeowner with the best possible manufacturers, suppliers, equipment, and installers. In the coming months we will be rolling out a nationwide directory of hand vetted installers in every town and city in America. Our proprietary scoring system ranks local solar installers by a combination of feedback from city inspectors, local utility companies, BBB, and customer surveys. We are very grateful to any homeowners willing to contact us and provide honest feedback from their experiences in with their experience with the chosen installer and/or equipment.


We are supported by federal and private grants.

Board of Directors

Our new board is currently being selected and will be published here shortly.

Scholarships & K-12 Grants

We will be announcing an exciting new scholarship program as well as a classroom grant program for K-12 classes later in 2017! Stay tuned.


We have a variety of job openings and encourage solar enthusiasts to apply by submitting a brief intro via our contact form. We’ve developed a system that allows for eco friendly, commute free remote work with daily communication via Slack, Teamwork, and Room.co for video conferencing. If you are in the DC metro area we can also provide a real live place to congregate with a few of us in the flesh. Pets allowed and Stumptown coffee and La Croix are provided. 😉
