Professional role and organization:
I'm the co-founder of Tuckerman & Co, which I started while in business school. Tuckerman is a mission-driven clothing company and our first product is a collection of dress shirts that are made from 100% organic cotton, European fabrics, and sewn here in New England where I live.

In 2013, we worked as consultants for a think tank exploring opportunities for scaling up the deployment of solar microgrids in India. Our research took us to the field, where we realized that the off-grid rural villages we visited were sometimes in a better position to access solar power than households in our own country. Upon returning to the U.S., we committed to change this. Steve first uncovered the emergence of community shared solar and Steph proposed leveraging the team's community organizing experience to build and offer shared solar at local institutions.
