Energy Equity and Inclusion Fellow


We are looking for an energy equity and inclusion fellow that can help us expand our energy equity work across the country. The energy equity and inclusion department works on addressing barriers to solar adoption. These pilots help us identify barriers, increase awareness and build support for more low-income solar programs. We assist SUN state directors in the design and implementation of low to moderate-income pilots. We also provide technical assistance to jurisdictions and organizations interested in deploying low-income solar. 

This is a one-year full-time position.

Specific tasks will include:

  • Build and maintain a relationship with current and past participants from SUN’s solar equity pilot programs, update demographics, track their experiences and record their stories.
  • Assist with the developing, testing, and scaling of new programs and lines of work focused on energy equity programs and policy, including job training programs, community education and outreach programs, community solar LMI efforts, and others.
  • Work with our director of energy equity and inclusion and the communications team to support the development and creation of materials, messaging, and outreach strategies that educate our network about energy democracy and equity, and how our members can help build a more inclusive movement.
  • Develop relationships with community stakeholders, attend meetings and write up reports.
  • Develop relationships with partner organizations, coalitions and allies with a focus on energy equity.
  • Assist the Director of Energy Equity and Inclusion and state directors with research and presentations on energy equity and energy democracy topics.
  • Performs other duties and special projects as assigned.

Strong candidates will:

  • Have experience with community organizing.
  • Be comfortable engaging diverse stakeholders and pilot participants in a culturally sensitive manner.
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills.
  • Strong research and data analysis skills.
  • Be comfortable working with a distributed team.
