Energy freedom for everyone is at our fingertips. But why does it still seem so far away? Because there are
some very powerful people preventing us from attaining it. In Power Trip, filmmaker Jonathan Scott (HGTV’s
Property Brothers) travels the United States confronting those at the root of the issue and meets the
everyday citizens fighting against a deeply entrenched, powerful system that’s waging war against the solar
industry—and against the rights of the people who want to choose how they power their lives. Jonathan Scott’s Power
Trip will infuriate, enrage, and compel you to take action to make solar energy a global reality.
Catch up on developments in sustainable energy efforts around the country that followed the conclusion of filming Jonathan Scott's Power Trip in 2019.
Filmmaker Jonathan Scott grew up on a rural farm where he was raised to respect the environment and understand the importance of preserving it. It’s a commitment he’s carried into his career as a licensed contractor, and along with his twin brother Drew, the co-host and executive producer of several hit HGTV home renovation series, including Property Brothers, Property Brothers: Forever Home, and Celebrity IOU. Jonathan’s pursuit of environmentally responsible construction and helping families access the freedom to power their lives has taken him from America’s front porches to the hallways of power on Capitol Hill.
In addition to remodeling more than 400 homes for families across North America, Jonathan serves as an ambassador for Habitat for Humanity as a Habitat Humanitarian, the international housing organization’s highest honor.
Jonathan is making his directorial debut with his film, Jonathan Scott’s Power Trip.
