*** Requirements for submitted articles ***
We run all your submissions through Copyscape and a Google search.
• Engaging headline and first paragraph
• Typically 750-2000 words. Write just long enough to engage and enrich readers.
Have as few edits as possible.
• Give credit
Check your facts and quotations. Cite the original sources (not the source that quoted the original source).
• Make it concrete
• No wall of text
It helps to break your content into easily digestible pieces for the reader.
• Use headings or subheadings in bulleted or numbered format
This makes your content highly skimmable for readers who don’t have a lot of time to read or for readers with short attention spans.
• Keep your writing simple
- Write like you’re talking to a kid.
- Revise towards simplicity.
- Use simple words and simple sentence structures.
- Keep it simple, casual, and engaging.
• Make sure your article provides value
Before submitting, ask yourself the following questions:
- Is my article helpful?
- Who will it help?
- Does it help consumers want to use solar energy?
• Be interesting
Write an article YOU would enjoy reading.
We reject articles that:
- Are not related to solar energy.
- Have already been published elsewhere.
- Are written primarily to promote oneself, one’s brand, or one’s website.
- Need intensive editing.
- Don’t have a clear flow or progression of ideas.
Thank you for your interest in promoting renewable energy!
