What drives your interest in working on solar energy issues?
I approach my work from a climate equity perspective. Energy is an important component to people’s wellbeing. I want to help get clean energy to frontline communities by helping local governments make it easier for installment, financing, and more.
What impact do you feel the SolSmart program and you as an Advisor will have on the communities with which you will work?
SolSmart provides a structured pathway and resources for communities to get more renewable energy. For communities that haven’t done any solar work before, this is a way for them to get connected to trusted organizations and to work towards tangible goals such as the different designations.
What aspects of your work plan are you most excited about working on?
I am really excited to help lower the soft costs for people to get renewable energy and encourage the growth of green jobs.
What do you hope to gain from this experience?
I want to become more knowledgeable about renewable energy and lift up the different ways that communities are changing the energy landscape.
