About the organization: Solar United Neighbors is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to creating a clean, equitable, resilient energy system that benefits everyone. We are building a clean energy movement by helping people go solar, join together, and fight for their energy rights.
On the regional level we run nine state programs: DC, MD, VA, WV, NJ, MN, OH, FL, and PA. Each state program promotes solar throughout its jurisdiction. The programs share three goals:
Develop and scale solar energy projects within communities,
Pass solar policies that expand the local solar market, and
Build a community of clean energy advocates that traverse traditional political fault lines.
At Solar United Neighbors, we believe that all of us have a stake in a future where every community participates in the financial benefits of our energy grid’s ongoing diversification from big central plants and passive consumers to a wider mix of distributed production & renewable energy.
Our organization is scaling rapidly and our office is a fast-paced multi-faceted environment, ideal for an intern who is looking to dive in and experience the workings of a dynamic and growing non-profit organization.
