The Clean, Renewable Energy Movement is Here


Demonstrate scientifically that using wind, water, and solar (WWS) to power our energy for all purposes (electricity, transportation, heating/cooling, and industry) paired with energy efficiency measures makes economic, health, and environmental sense.

Give you the tools to adopt renewable energy solutions that make economic and environmental sense for your family, business and community.

Highlight renewable energy projects and people doing great work - the transition is already underway!

Have fun (Seriously, we’re going to have a great time …. you should join us)

About Us

Our Story

In June of 2011, a scientist, an actor, a banker and a filmmaker were sitting around a table talking about their opposition to extreme energy extraction. Their conversation sparked an important realization - it wasn’t enough for them to be against something. They needed to be part of the solution. That day, Mark Jacobson, Mark Ruffalo, Marco Krapels and Josh Fox created The Solutions Project. Our Mission: Use the powerful combination of science + business + culture to accelerate the transition to 100% clean, renewable energy.


Professor Jacobson and his team have created 50 state plans for 50 states to transition to 100% renewable energy. Each plan identifies a custom mix of wind, water and solar (WWS) to power our energy for all purposes (electricity, transportation, heating/cooling and industry). The plans will stabilize energy prices, create jobs, minimize air pollution, and begin to eliminate global warming. They will also create enormous investment opportunities for clean energy, transportation and energy efficiency. For more information about the plans or to see additional research from Professor Jacobson, visit his Stanford University website.


The Solutions Project focuses on market-based solutions and identifies opportunities that make economic sense for consumers, businesses, communities, and states. We work with clean energy business leaders, policy experts, NGOs, and other organizations to remove the barriers facing the future of clean, renewable energy. This transition makes economic sense for all of us, and we are going to show you the economic proof. Ultimately, this is a green issue - the additional green that will find its way into your pocket.


We will “connect people with their power” by showing how clean, renewable energy from wind, water and solar (WWS) benefits all of us, and by giving people the tools they need to make positive economic and environmental change. The Solutions Project’s celebrity supporters and cultural influencers will spread the word about the economic, environmental and health benefits of clean, renewable energy. And most importantly, we connect people and communities with actionable renewable energy solutions.
