About The Solar Foundation is a national 501(c)(3) nonprofit working to demonstrate the benefits of solar energy through research, public education and market development projects. Founded in 1977 and based in Washington, DC, our organization strives to increase the widespread adoption of solar energy through educational outreach, policy research, data collection and market transformational efforts. Previously, we operated as the Solar Energy Research and Education Foundation (SEREF).
We strive to increase the use of solar energy,
our cleanest, greatest, and most available energy source.
