Yes, it’s inevitable. We know everyone can access affordable, clean efficient energy if barriers are removed to provide each and all of us with choice. Scientists tell us 100% is possible. We know it’s true because it’s already happening.

Today, across the country, people are living better lives and reviving communities with the combination of human energy and new clean energy. All kinds of people, from all walks of life, know clean efficient energy is a path to something greater. For themselves, their children and grandchildren, for their neighbors and fellow Americans.

Families in states like Kansas, Kentucky and North Carolina are saving an average of 25% on their energy bills through efficiency upgrades made possible through a proven utility investment model. By addressing barriers to financing for distributed energy solutions that work for all consumers, these programs reach the broadest cross-section of participants, including low-income households and renters.

Companies including General Motors, Walmart, Apple, Johnson & Johnson, Crayola and Google are also making big energy efficiency upgrades, as well as putting in solar and wind farms to run operations, and finding that new clean energy is good for business.

Schools from Virginia to Nebraska and New York to Alaska are generating their own clean renewable energy, saving money while helping young people in their communities breathe more easily.

Ninety-one communities in Illinois have made the switch to 100% renewable electricity.  Iowa and South Dakota are producing more than a quarter of their electricity from wind power.  And while Houston, Texas might be the oil capital of the country, it’s powering half of its municipal operations with renewable energy.

People in each of these places are going 100% because it makes economic sense, and as they are increasing demand, they are increasing access and affordability for everyone.

100% leaders are the key to making new clean energy affordable and accessible for everyone. With them, the 100% campaign is already changing the culture around new clean energy – recognizing today’s leaders and inspiring tomorrow’s, sparking new conversation about what is possible and igniting the human spirit to achieve it.

We help you imagine and do what’s possible.  Join us and you can achieve 100%. With you, we have the power.

Clean energy is homegrown, renewable, efficient. It includes solar energy, wind energy, geothermal and hydropower. Clean energy empowers Americans to make their lives and the lives of others better. Among the benefits:

  • Clean, local, renewable, efficient energy gives Americans the freedom to own and control their own energy.  It is the ultimate democratizing force.
  • Clean, local, renewable, efficient energy grows local economies. When energy is generated locally, it generates jobs.  When businesses save energy, it improves the bottom line. When consumers save energy, they have more dollars to spend on local goods and services or save for what they love.
  • Clean, local, renewable, efficient energy eliminates air and water pollution, making communities healthier and stronger.
  • Clean, local, renewable, efficient energy loosens the grip that foreign countries – many of whom don’t like us – have on us.  It doesn’t matter where the fossil fuel is drilled – it is priced on a world market – which means that countries like Iran, Russia and Saudi Arabia can manipulate that price and wreck havoc on our economy.
  • Clean, local, renewable, efficient energy saves people time, freeing up their lives to focus on what matters most to them.

This is a campaign about what’s possible when human energy and clean energy come together. We know that 100% of both makes life better for each and all of us.  That’s why our campaign goal is to make clean energy more accessible and affordable – the result will be more and more people leading healthier, safer, more prosperous, even more fulfilling, lives. 100% powers the best in all Americans. For example, by choosing a clean energy path:

  • Parents – who are 100% devoted to their children – are building their kids a healthier future.
  • Small business owners are controlling expenses, saving money they can plow back into their companies, and doing right by their stakeholders, giving 100% to get the job done.
  • People of faith – who are 100% dedicated to doing God’s work – are caring for creation and acting in service of others.
  • Veterans are establishing new businesses and gaining entry to clean-tech jobs, while boosting national security and lessening the chance of men and women in uniform being sent into harm’s way – all part of their 100% dedication to protecting the nation.
  • Educators – who are 100% about the kids – are saving schools money that can be used for instruction, while empowering students to build a better world.

Clean efficient energy creates job opportunities, helps stabilize the household budget, and improves human health by cleaning the air and water. People who have the option and choose clean energy save money, time and effort to spend on who and what they love. Clean energy can even change lives. A few examples from New York, the first place we’ve launched the 100% campaign:

  • A young boxer from the Bronx has turned from a life of drugs and trouble to become a leader bringing solar power to her community with Grid Alternatives.
  • PUSH Buffalo is helping families embrace energy efficiency and reduce high energy bills while creating living-wage jobs for local residents.
  • A brewery goes solar, saves money, and gives beer lovers a whole new reason to feel good about hosting a pint.

Clean energy is a path to individual attainment, better health, economic strength, and national security.

  • Clean energy gives American families, businesses, organizations and communities the freedom to generate and control their own energy.
  • Clean energy creates jobs, grows the economy, and saves money for consumers and businesses.
  • Clean energy curbs air and water pollution, making communities healthier and stronger.
  • Clean energy increases energy independence, boosting economic and national security.

100% is a campaign of The Solutions Project, a national nonprofit organization that engages the public, celebrates leaders, and advances partnerships and policies to transition to a clean energy future for all.

The 100% story began when culture, business and science all came together to prove possibility, and inevitability, for nation-wide, complete renewable energy. It all started when actor and advocate Mark Ruffalo, banker Marco Krapels and scientist Mark Jacobson met after Ruffalo gave an acceptance speech for the Global Green award. They immediately agreed on two things when it came to advancing renewable energy: we can’t say no to business. We can’t say no to the economy.

What can we say yes to?

Together, they reached out to Prof. Jacobson, who had done a study on the feasibility of converting to 100% renewable energy worldwide. Within 24 hours there was a 30-page report on Mark Ruffalo’s desk, propelled by Jacobson’s enthusiasm for how realistic the vision of 100% renewable actually is. “The three Marks” established the Solutions Project to carry this vision into reality. They created the 100% campaign as the vehicle for allowing every individual in every state, and around the globe, to take part in shaping a renewable future – a campaign for everyone, living and being their all.

The 100% Leadership Fund is a grant program managed by The Solutions Project. Through the fund, we provide grants to local nonprofit organizations in New York and other states that are working to make clean energy more accessible and affordable for everyone.

The 100% campaign receives funding from individuals and philanthropic organizations that support the transition to a clean energy economy.

No, the 100% campaign does not receive funding from clean energy companies. We do, however, receive a commission for every referral we send to the energy concierge service Domino and other solutions providers through our 100% Hotline, website, events and other activities. Every commission we receive goes to help support local organizations through the 100% Leadership Fund.
