Groundswell will host a Juneteenth celebration to kick off a bi-weekly concert series. Juneteenth is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the end of slavery in the U.S., and it is an important day to celebrate freedom while making room for new leaders to cast their vision and carry the future forward.
This year, the Discalced Carmelite Friars of Washington, D.C., and Groundswell will continue to follow Jesus’ call to love our neighbors through the benefits created by the recently energized solar project at the Monastery of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel.
(Washington, DC) April 14, 2020 – Groundswell announced today that the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) has selected its pioneering resilience hub project serving the Atlanta University Center Consortium (AUCC) to participate in a collaborative research effort to develop novel applications of solar energy and other distributed energy resources (DERs) in unique locations and contexts. This partnership makes up one of just eight teams selected to join the program, which is known as the Solar Energy Innovation Network.
Groundswell is thrilled to announce that Bartees Cox, a veteran campaign and marketing and communications leader, has joined the organization’s leadership team as Director of Marketing and Communications. Bartees will oversee community engagement and marketing and communications for Groundswell’s community power programs, including existing and future SharePower™ solar projects.
