Chris Stimpson


Chris Stimpson became Solar Nation's first executive campaigner in July 2007, advocating for legislative and regulatory support for solar power development in the U.S. In this role he reaches out to individuals and organizations to undertake advocacy actions at local, state, and federal levels. Solar Nation became a program of the American Solar Energy Society in May 2009.

For the last seven years Chris has also been a director of Clean Power Now, a grassroots group of over 10,000 members supporting the recently permitted Cape Wind project, America's first offshore wind farm. In this role he wrote frequently in regional media, dispelling myths and untruths about the project and renewable energy in general.
