#SolarChat the SOTU Recap

February 14, 2013

We at SEIA want to thank each and every one of you that engaged in our #solarchat last night during the State of the Union.

As you could probably tell, the event was a great success for #solarchat. More importantly, the event was a monumental moment for solar. Not only did the President mention “solar” twice during his address, but all of us following the conversation were able to magnify and maximize his message.

There is still much work to be done – that is why it is critical to continue to take advantage of moments that can bring solar the positive national attention it deserves.

Here is a rundown of some of the figures from our #solarchat for those interested:

Tweets: 1,500

Participants: 226

Handles Reached: 182,857

Impressions (reach x retweets): 2,060,408

Most retweeted tweets:
