20 Celebrities That Have Gone Solar

Many celebrities are major advocates for sustainable living. Some, such as Stephen Colbertdrive a Tesla. Others have installed rooftop solar panels and other renewable energy systems on their homes, and still others use their celebrity status to promote strong climate action.

Several of those celebrities have even signed up for solar panels through the Solar Neighborhood Program, which was launched more than a decade ago by actor Ed Norton.
