Solar and Power
Suzanne is working with farms and wineries in New York State to install solar and other renewable energy technologies.
Re-inventing our agricultural system is essential to enabling resiliency and healthy communities as the climate changes and the population expands.
Accurate information and robust analysis provide the foundation for good decision making and innovative problem solving. We pride ourselves on our ability to obtain and translate complex information into compelling stories.
The transition off of fossil fuels, away from destructive farming practices, and towards a restorative economy overall requires diverse and often unlikely alliances, based on trust, capability, dependability, and follow through.
We all need to be inspired to work harder and dream bigger. To take on the world’s most daunting challenges we need to constantly push ourselves and others far beyond our comfort zones.

“Suzanne is the genuine article. In the Climate Change movement there are a lot of folks who are working hard to pass legislation and promote solutions, but then there are folks who actually are moving technologies forward. Suzanne is actually digging into the details, meeting the entrepreneurs, learning new skills in finance, and generally working as hard as possible. In a word, Suzanne is a “DOer”. She does not pontificate or complain, she digs in and solves real problems. Go Suzanne!”
