A large group of enthusiastic people gathered at Columbia University for a “hacking community solar” event. Our Power’s Gary Skulnik was a featured speaker, alongside Ecogy Solar and SolarKal. It was hosted by the school’s Tamer Center for Social Enterprise and MBA Student Donna Sanders, who is leading a team investigating the community solar business model. We talked about the incredible promise of community solar and the challenges we need to overcome to make those promises a reality. There was a lot of good thinking, discussing, and learning as the next generation of social entrepreneurs grappled with key questions about making solar work for everyone, not just the elite few.
