About Us

Solstice Initiative is a nationwide nonprofit that empowers low-income and Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) communities towards a just and inclusive clean energy transition. As the fossil fuel industry continues to exacerbate the climate crisis, these US communities bear the brunt of its effects while spending a disproportionate share of their income on their utility bills. Though rooftop solar is commonly considered a remedy to these systemic problems, 80% of Americans can’t access it because they do not own a home, have the right rooftop, or have the ability to finance it. That’s why Solstice deploys community solar: an equitable solution to break fossil fuel dependence and decrease high energy costs, providing access to clean energy to anyone with an electric bill. Community solar enables households to subscribe to a portion of a solar farm in their community, allowing them to reap the benefits of local clean energy and monthly energy bill savings. Solstice works at the nexus of clean energy and social justice to provide BIPOC and low-income households with accessible and affordable community solar projects, to research and innovate solutions that address exclusion within the clean energy movement, and to advocate for inclusive, green policies in every state. Together, we will make solar accessible to everyone.
