Before joining the Solar United Neighbors team, Ian worked in rural Ecuador, studying the effects of a hydroelectric dam on nearby farming communities and working to protect those farmers’ water rights. This experience left him with a more nuanced understanding of the ways energy production impacts our society and environment. Ian is excited to be back in the states, working toward a sustainable, equitable energy system. When he’s not working, biking, or with friends, you can find Ian with a guitar, book, and/or craft brew in hand.

Ben Delman

Communications Director

As a six-year-old, Ben asked his sitting-senator if he could correctly spell “potato.” Since then, Ben has continued trying to put his big mouth to good use. He enjoys communicating the benefits an equitable, solar powered energy system provides and its tangible benefits for everyone. Ben hopes one day to see his beloved Cubs win a World Series, again.

Karan Ireland

Director of First Energy Campaign

The 2014 Charleston, West Virginia chemical spill that poisoned the drinking water of 300,000 people motivated Karan to get into civic engagement. Her work digging into the system failures of regulators and public utilities that led to the crisis exposed the damage caused when profit takes priority over the interest of the community. Her activism on water issues connected her with Bill Howley, an influential and optimistic energy activist and his work supporting West Virginia solar.
