Who We Are
Georgians for Solar Freedom (GA4SF) is a grassroots movement of likeminded individuals that understand the value of generating more solar energy in our state. Unlike some advocates, we push for more solar energy based on core conservative principles in order to accomplish key conservative priorities. GA4SF wants more solar options because it is the right thing to do politically and economically for our state and our country.
What We Stand For
National Security- Our dependence on foreign oil puts our security at risk. While we support new traditional energy projects like the Keystone XL pipeline and more drilling, we want a true “all of the above” domestic energy plan. By combining the responsible utilization of fossil fuels with increased affordability of solar, we can achieve energy independence and cut off funding to those who may wish to do use harm.
Free Market Competition- The free market is a powerful force. With energy costs from traditional energy sources increasing, we need more competition from new sources to help drive overall prices down. That’s how we deliver affordable energy for businesses that create jobs, as well as families that are feeling the crunch in household budgets. We want to compliment- NOT do away with- fossil based sources of energy.
Technological Innovation- The 20th Century was the “The American Century” due to our ability to innovate. From mass producing the automobile, to developing a weapon to end a World War, and then connecting us all via personal computers and the internet, America led the world for 100 years. Now some of our country’s brightest minds and most forward thinking venture capitalists are driving innovation in solar technology for the 21st Century.
How You Can Help
Georgia conservatives need a unified voice in developing domestic energy policy, especially in promoting more solar energy options. Working together, we can educate, motivate, and activate our elected officials into becoming champions for our cause. But they need to hear directly from all of us. If our common sense conservative principles in support of solar energy make sense to you, we hope you’ll become a member of Georgians for Solar Freedom!
