While it is true that in terms of raw numbers, women are underrepresented in the solar industry, that does not mean that there aren’t amazing women making major contributions to the growth of solar. Recently the folks over at PVSolarReport highlighted their Top 10 Women of Solar. Here’s our take.
The list of women compiled by author Lisa Ann Pinkerton is certainly laudable, with founders of major corporate players, leaders of trade associations, commentators and activists. Here’s a brief summary of who’s who on the list:
We have added the Twitter handles where we could identify them (or that of their company/association when we could not), and given that this is #FollowFriday, what could be more appropriate that to follow all of these impressive women?
Of course, one list begets another and it only seemed fair to toss in a few additional names. We limited ourselves to only one person from a given organization (otherwise we would have a huge list just from those terrific women at Enphase) and by definition this list is far more personal in nature.
So, in no particular order, here are some of our Top Women in Solar:
Heck, no way we could leave Velvet off this list, even if she isn’t on Twitter! And while our list is heavily weighted toward the journalism side of things, every one of these women is making a difference in solar, and we think they are awesome!
So, who would you include? One list does beget another so please, after you finish following all of these amazing women, let us know who we missed!
