“Property Brother” Jonathan Scott journeys across the U.S. to uncover why solar energy isn’t available to all.


About the Documentary

Property Brothers co-host and home-renovation expert Jonathan Scott journeys all across the U.S. to uncover why clean, renewable energy isn’t available to all. While traveling to learn both the obstacles and opportunities for achieving energy freedom, Jonathan talks with conservatives fighting for solar freedom; sits down with farmers struggling to make ends meet; engages coal workers desperate for a new, healthy means of making an income; the Navajo Nation who built a utility-scale solar plant; religious leaders who made a desperate attempt to help meet their community’s energy needs; and politicians at the forefront of the battle for energy freedom. 

Jonathan Scott’s Power Trip illuminates the obstacles and opportunities that exist in creating a system that gives the public a wider choice when it comes to sourcing energy.
