Since its inception, Solstice has committed itself to and sought to practice the values of equity, diversity, and inclusion.  We believe that these values should be reflected not only in the approach the United States takes to clean energy.   These values should also be broadly expressed in the manner in which the United States treats its citizens—and individuals of any country. America exists in large part due to the immigrants and refugees who arrived here and brought extraordinary gifts to our shores. 


As such, we forcefully condemn and reject any effort to discriminate against any individuals on the basis of color, creed, or class.  We will, moreover, strive to counteract any effort to subject members and stakeholders of our organization to discrimination or mistreatment.  We will seek to safeguard our ability to attract talented individuals of diverse backgrounds.  Finally, we will speak out wholeheartedly and consistently for those policies and practices that truly make America great.

About Solstice Initiative

Solstice Initiative is the first social enterprise dedicated to expanding affordable solar power to the 80% of Americans who cannot install a rooftop system. Under the Solstice model, households subscribe to a portion of a community solar array, enabling them to access clean energy and save money on their utility bill. Solstice partners with trusted local organizations to distribute community solar to their membership, conducting outreach efforts and managing the customer experience.
