With the help of the oil company BP, actor Edward Norton is trying to make solar energy more affordable for low-income Los Angeles families. Norton’s efforts are supported by his Hollywood pals, including Brad Pitt, Salma Hayek, and Danny DeVito. So far, dozens of inner-city families have received solar panels, including some in the slums. But he needs help from more celebrities, including Pierce Brosnan and Cate Blanchett.

Pierce Brosnan

Two of Hollywood’s most famous green-minded stars have recently announced their plans to install solar panels on their homes. Pierce Brosnan and Edward Norton are the first celebrities to be honored for this cause. Brosnan’s green energy passion includes marine mammals and wetlands, while Norton is an active member of the Environmental Media Association. In addition to solar panels on his own home, Brosnan has helped promote dolphin-safe tuna rules.

While many celebrities are hesitant to make this kind of commitment, Brosnan is a vocal advocate of solar energy. He has installed solar panels on his home in Los Angeles, which allows him to sell excess power back to the grid and help the environment. His solar power system even powers a compost heap. And while Brosnan may be busy with the Oscars, he is not the only celebrity getting involved in solar power.

Cate Blanchett

Actors Cate Blanchett and Edward Norton are leading the charge against climate change and environmental destruction with a new film, Solar Power. The two have become goodwill ambassadors for renewable energy, and have acted as advocates for the green energy movement. They have helped build and renovate hundreds of homes in New Orleans, many of them powered by solar energy. The actors are also promoting environmental awareness by installing rooftop solar panels in their own homes.

The actors have a long history of promoting environmental causes. In 2006, they helped launch the Solar Neighbors program, a nonprofit organization that matches families with solar panels to help them meet their energy needs. Other celebrities have gotten involved, too, including Brad Pitt, Salma Hayek, and Julia Roberts. Cate Blanchett has a long-time commitment to sustainable living, and her Malibu home is powered entirely by solar. She even uses energy-efficient lighting, and her house has a 20,000-litre water tank.

Brad Pitt

Actors Edward Norton and Brad Pitt are promoting solar power in their homes. Both are promoting solar power as a way to reduce energy costs. Pitt, who starred in the 2008 film The Social Network, is known for his support of environmental causes. He founded his Make It Right Foundation in 2007, which supports the building of eco-friendly houses. Pitt has also volunteered with organizations such as BP’s Solar Neighbours program, which aims to help people in developing countries go green and reduce utility bills.

The actors are not the only celebrities backing solar energy. Dame Emma Thompson, who was nominated for an Academy Award for the film Frida, has also invested in the initiative. She is an avid environmentalist and has campaigned against oil exploration in the Arctic, and has joined a group of Greenpeace UK members to prevent the construction of a third runway at Heathrow Airport. Brad Pitt and Edward Norton are involved in Solar Neighbors, and they have both lent their names to the cause. Edward Norton also has a strong supporter in Danny DeVito, who supports Brad Pitt and Edward Norton’s Solar Neighbors program.

Rachel McAdams

Actresses Rachel McAdams and Edward Norton have made a commitment to environmental causes. The actors, who are known for starring in The Notebook, use electricity-efficient appliances and unplug their appliances when not in use. They’ve also set up their homes to run on solar power. This commitment to sustainability is evident in their public and private lives. Rachel McAdams is a big advocate for renewable energy and she demonstrates her commitment to it with ‘Green Is Sexy’, a website about green living.

In addition to Edward Norton and Rachel McAdams, many celebrities have taken steps to reduce their carbon footprints. Actress Lea Michele is a longtime advocate of renewable energy. She has participated in numerous climate change initiatives, including the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation, which promotes sustainability in the future. The star has even powered his film set with solar energy. Other celebrities have also made it a point to adopt sustainable lifestyles, including driving an electric car and unplugging appliances when not in use.

Edward Norton

The Oscar-nominated actor has made solar power a key part of his charitable work. The actor has teamed up with solar-panel producer BP and has launched the Solar Neighbors Program to install solar panels on low-income homes throughout Los Angeles. In addition to donating solar panels to low-income families, Norton has raised money and raised awareness among his celebrity friends, attracting support from dozens of Hollywood A-listers.

In addition to promoting green energy, the actor is an ambassador for the cause. In the United Nations Goodwill Against Deforestation, he is an advocate of solar energy. He is a longtime supporter of solar and has even installed solar panels in his home. Other notable supporters include British actress Dame Emma Thompson, who is an activist for environmental causes. Brad Pitt, a longtime supporter of renewable energy, founded the Make it Right foundation two years after the devastation of Hurricane Katrina. Brad Pitt, who founded the Make It Right Foundation in 2007, also supports Edward Norton’s solar power efforts.
