Director, Affordable Solar
Anika Wistar-Jones has been making solar accessible to low-income New Yorkers since joining Solar One in 2016. She joined Solar One’s Here Comes Solar team after working in the environmental movement throughout New York and New England. As a grassroots organizer with Environment America she led campaigns against climate change and fracking, and in the political realm, she organized campaigns for Senator Markey in Massachusetts and Senator Murphy in Connecticut and worked for Senator Sanders in his Washington, DC office. More recently, she’s helped grow mission-driven solar and energy efficiency start ups in Vermont and New York. Born and raised in Vermont, Anika attended the United World College in Duino, Italy, and Middlebury College in Middlebury, VT, where she got her start in the environmental movement. When she’s not at Solar One, Anika can be found hiking in the woods, dancing in the streets, or getting lost in far-off places. She is passionate about environmental justice and the color blue.
