"Founded in 1954, the 501(c)(3) non-profit American Solar Energy Society (ASES) is the nation’s largest and most established community of solar professionals and enthusiasts dedicated to enabling 100% renewable energy in the United States.

ASES’s purpose is to continue being a catalyst and a valuable resource in the emergence (and re-evolution) of America’s new energy economy, in a way that deeply values the role of all stakeholders in a collaborative and transparent co-creative process, so that all stakeholders enthusiastically participate in advancing the legacy of solar and renewable energy to enrich the quality of life, indefinitely."

Why should Tennessee residents care about solar energy? The energy source is free, and by helping to bring solar businesses to our state, the price and availability of accessing this resource will become more affordable to more people. In addition, Tennesseans will find more jobs, our environment will be cleaner, and our state's economy will be stronger.
