The word Lodestar historically referred to a star used in navigation but now connotes an entity that is leading the way. The PA Solar Center recognizes the inspirational leadership of organizations and businesses that have gone solar.

We also understand that organizations or businesses that have gone solar and sell their solar renewable energy credits (SREC) or are under a power purchase agreement with a third party in control of their SRECs are not permitted to claim that their facilities are powered with solar.

With the Lodestar Award, these organizations can publicly display their dedication to solar energy with our logo and show that their company or organization is a luminary in solar energy, without violating the rules around claiming environmental attributes.

We hope that organizations and businesses will accept our award and display it on their website as a badge of pride in solar advancement and also as an inspiration for others to do the same.

If your organization and business is interested in receiving the Lodestar Award, please contact us at info@pasolarcenter.org and we will respond with the electronic “award” and information about displaying the Lodestar logo on your webpage or social media.

In addition, be sure that your project is included on our solar installation map.
