Having recently joined Nexamp as the Director of Policy and Regulatory Affairs, I’m a relatively new member of the team. Part of my interview process included a meeting with Zaid Ashai, Nexamp’s Chairman and CEO. As a mother of a two-year-old, I asked Zaid about Nexamp’s commitment to a diverse workforce, including policies that support working parents. My former employer offered generous leave and other supportive benefits and I wanted to join a like-minded company.
I am currently a new Asset Manager for Nexamp, monitoring and maintaining the company’s operating solar portfolio. Only six months ago, I was finishing up my undergraduate studies, still somewhat unsure of my career trajectory. I studied English and Environmental Science at Wesleyan and I have always had a passion for current issues relevant to my generation. Environmental threats are only becoming more pressing and I was confident that coupling these problems with developing technologies would lead to a lot of untapped job growth in the industry. It was this initial lure that brought me to Washington, D.C. for an environmental policy internship just a few weeks after finishing up college.

Have you ever driven by a house with solar panels and thought to yourself, “If only my roof faced the right direction,” or “If only I had enough money to invest in solar!”? For years, adopting solar has been a challenge for many people. The benefits have been limited to homeowners with large roofs with minimal shading, who are able to pay thousands for an installation. While the costs of solar are rapidly dropping, residential solar remains feasible for only approximately 20% of homeowners in the United States.
