Patrick Owusu joined Solar One’s Here Comes Solar program in 2019 to ensure low income housing residents know that green energy alternatives are not only available, but affordable and accessible. Patrick is a born and raised New Yorker from Washington Heights and a graduate from Brooklyn College, obtaining a B.S. in Earth and Environmental Sciences. While in school, he found a passion for fighting to improve New York City’s environment in ways great and small. Whether it was a campaign calling to keep NY fracking free (2014), organizing waterside cleanups, or helping New Yorkers understand how to dispose of household waste with DSNY through City Service Corps (2017-2018), his track record shows a mind geared towards a sustainable future. For the times that Patrick isn’t deftly working to further his career, you can find him at the gym, at a downtown bar, hosting a home-brewed D&D session, or relaxing in a park; contemplating the world with a smile.
