Solstice Initiative

Maker - Steph Speirs

Solstice Initiative

Maker Story

Solar communities

Solar energy is getting more accessible and affordable, but it’s still out of reach for 80% of Americans. Founders Steph Speirs and Steve Moilanen came up with the idea for Solstice Initiative while working in rural South Asia—where it was easier to access solar energy than in the U.S.

Solar panels aren’t an option for renters and for people with lower income, inadequate credit or a non-optimal roof. To help overcome those obstacles, Solstice Initiative uses a community solar model.

It work similar to a community farm. A business or organization can set up solar panels that feed excess energy back into a shared power grid. Community members can buy into the program and save money on their utility bills with the generated energy.

By supporting Solstice Initiative, you can help expand clean energy and bring sunshine (literal and metaphorical) to people who can use it.
