Share Solar Austin Happy Hour: Clean Energy Credit Union

Event Details

For our May happy hour, Amanda Bybee will share the story of the Clean Energy Credit Union (CECU), a first-of-its-kind financial institution dedicated to providing affordable financing for clean energy products or services, such as EV purchases or home energy efficiency projects or solar retrofits. In addition to serving as a volunteer on the Supervisory Committee of the credit union, Amanda worked to obtain the CECU’s federal charter as a not-for-profit, tax-exempt cooperative that is democratically owned and controlled by its members on a one-vote-per-member basis. While the CECU is unique, it is not Amanda’s first foray into deeply democratic co-operative business structures.

About Amanda Bybee: 

In 2016, Amanda helped to earn a SunShot Initiative award from the US Department of Energy to found the Amicus O&M Cooperative, where she serves as CEO. This operations and maintenance cooperative brings together a network of service providers across the country to offer coordinated services for geographically distributed portfolios of solar assets. Its sister organization, Amicus Solar, is a member’s-owned buyers cooperative for solar installation companies. Both of these cooperatives are cultural and business offshoots of Colorado-based Namasté Solar, an employee-owned and B Corp-certified solar EPC. Prior to joining Namasté Solar in 2006, where she held numerous roles over an 11-year span, Amanda worked as a “Jill-of-all-trades” at Austin-based Meridian Solar. Amanda started her solar career in 2003, promoting renewable energy as the coordinator of Public Citizen’s Solar Austin Campaign."
