Mryia Williams

Ohio Program Associate

Mryia is a sustainability-minded individual. She started with SUN by advocating for the solar rights of those living within a Homeowners Association (HOA). This is an issue near to her. Her own HOA tried to stop her from going solar. She has personal experience with the Solar United Neighbors co-op process. She and her husband went solar on their own home with the Columbus 2020 Co-Op.  Mryia also enjoys sharing her knowledge about electric vehicles and how they can partner with solar installations.

In her downtime, Mryia likes to spend time with her three cats, cheer on her favorite hockey team, and tend to her backyard garden.
