Climate Win: Energy Justice and Community Solar Power

In this season of Connect the Dots, Rob explores environmental justice and climate wins across the country and how we can replicate those successes elsewhere. 

This episode digs into a community win in North Carolina: community-based solar solutions. But what does that mean exactly? And can it make energy more affordable to everyone?

Rob is joined by Ajulo Othow, founder and CEO of EnerWealth Solutions, as well as Board Member to the Center for Progressive Reform. Ajulo describes energy justice, the power behind solar energy, and what’s standing in the way of broader community solar uptake.
