Solar UnitedNeighbors began its work over a decade agowith five simple words: “Mom, can we go solar?” This was asked of our Executive Director, Anya Schoolman by her then middle school aged son Walter, after he and his friend Diego had just seen “An Inconvenient Truth” an Oscar-winning documentary SOLAR UNITED NEIGHBORS — Over a Decade of Supporting Solar Communities
about the environment and the pair were motivated to take action. Up to the challenge put upon her by her son and his friend, Anya looked into going solar, but at the time it was expensive and complicated. Anya also quickly realized that if she was going to put in the time and work into making her own home solar, she might as well do it for the whole neighborhood. So, Walter and Diego canvassed their block and successfully got about 50 neighbors on board over a period of a couple of years and the first solar co-op was born. Word of this effort spread about this project around Washington, D.C and soon other neighborhoods followed suit. Fast forward to today, Solar United Neighbors helps thousands of homeowners across the country go solar each year.
