We’re happy to announce our team is growing. We recently added Autumn Long as our new Solar Co-op Coordinator. Autumn, a West Virginia native, will help us expand solar across the state.

“Co-ops make it easy for people to save on solar,” Autumn said. “As a solar owner myself, I’m excited to work with fellow West Virginians to help them access the benefits of solar energy.”

In her role as Solar Co-op Coordinator, Autumn will work with West Virginia communities to expand access to solar energy. She will develop and manage solar co-ops across the state. Autumn has been an entrepreneur, community organizer, advocate, writer, editor, researcher, homesteader, and gardener.

Autumn holds a B.Phil. in Anthropology from the University of Pittsburgh and an M.A. in Geography from West Virginia University. She lives on a farm in Harrison County with her husband, dog, horse, donkey, chickens, and net-metered solar PV system.
