I want to share a new federal policy brief launched by the group Black Owners of Solar Services (BOSS). I serve on the founding board of directors for BOSS and am so pleased by the work and vision of this young organization.
BOSS is the largest community of African American professionals working in the solar photovoltaic (PV) space. It is comprised of entrepreneurs, financiers, veterans, attorneys, engineers, contractors, developers and other peer partners. BOSS possess deep knowledge, experience and strategic access to the multi-trillion dollar, emerging solar and clean energy technology marketplace that is fast reshaping sustainability, infrastructure resilience and livelihoods in our country and across the globe. It has established roots and relationships in all communities, and particularly those disproportionately impacted by climate change —in the United States and abroad. BOSS’ collective efforts are making communities more resilient, sustainable and economically powerful.
