Sach Constantine is the executive director of Vote Solar.
Solar energy is seemingly everywhere these days, with regulatory proceedings in abundance and lots of projects lined up. Keeping up with all of that across the United States isn't easy as the journey toward decarbonization continues.
Vote Solar is a nonprofit policy organization advocacy group that wants to make sure no one is left out of that journey, with its mission of making solar energy more accessible and affordable across the United States. It has a North Star, too, of making solar energy ubiquitous.
So far, the organization is operating in twenty-seven states, but is growing. Vote Solar has a new executive director as of May, Sach Constantine, and PUF sat down with him to discuss his leadership goals and more. Listen in.
PUF's Steve Mitnick: You've been named executive director of Vote Solar. How did that come to pass?
Sach Constantine: This has been a great journey for me. I've been here for five years, and when I came to my job, our founding director had been there for fifteen years and now has finished a twenty-year run at Vote Solar.
