American Solar Action Plan

American Solar Action Plan (ASAP) is a non-profit organization founded in Farmingdale, New York in 2000 as the “Solar Energy Campaign.”
ASAP’s mission is to research and promote solar and wind power systems that result in the lowest retail electricity price for homes and businesses.
Also, ASAP is concerned about U.S. dependence on foreign energy supplies and proposes economically viable means to create U.S. energy independence.
The U.S. has a very large solar (Southwest) and wind (Midwest) energy resource base that can fully supply all U.S. future energy needs at affordable and stable prices.
The objective is to move from a local electricity supply system to a national electricity supply system in order to produce and distribute our abundant supply of
lowest cost solar and wind electricity to local markets nationwide.
James Mason, Ph.D. is Director and co-founder of ASAP. Mason received a Ph.D. in economic sociology from Cornell University in 1996 and
a Master’s in environmental sociology from the University of New Orleans in 1991. Mason has published numerous peer-reviewed energy and environmental studies.
Mason and the four ASAP Board members began working together and advocating renewable energy reforms in the 1970s with the Carter “War on Energy” programs.
ASAP is registered with the IRS as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Contributions are tax deductible
