Rooftop Solar

Getting solar panels on your rooftop can have a big impact on reducing carbon pollution and helping birds. But even if you’re a pro at things like recycling and saving energy, you may still have questions about solar power. Can it be affordable? Do the panels work when the sun isn’t shining? And what if you rent your home?

Get answers to these questions and more in Audubon’s online solar resources. Learn more about how solar energy works, find details on how to get it, and hear from other bird lovers who’ve already made the switch.

Alison, an Audubon staff member in Colorado, put solar panels on her house because she wants to protect birds and the environment for her kids and future generations. “I would do it again in a heartbeat,” she says. She’s not the only one—many people in Ohio are going solar, too.
