When Steph Speirs discovered that 80% of people in the US can’t install rooftop solar, she set out on a mission to make solar energy accessible to all. As the co-founder and CEO of Solstice she is a pioneer in community solar, where solar panels are installed in a centralized location and people can then enroll as a solar customer and purchase solar energy without having to install panels on their roof, which provides every Amercian household, regardless of income level, credit score, or any other factor, the opportunity to purchase clean energy. On this episode of World-changing Women, we’ll hear how Steph built her company, her take on the importance of relationships with your co-founders and teammates, and why she feels we all need to use our voices for change.
