“Oftentimes great policy gets derailed in the deployment process.
I like to describe it as a film of racism that coats everything, that if we don’t design for that, and we don’t design for the inherent biases that people have in America, that when we try to deploy it, we’ll still have inequity.
Even though something like Pay As You Save® allows access for everyone, that doesn’t mean everyone has access to it.”

“Utility commissioners have the authority right now to move forward.
There’s no utility commission in the United States that cannot actually initiate [Pay as You Save®]. And I think it’s important for us to encourage communities to be in open dialogue with those public officials…
Most utility commissions just haven’t heard enough from their community members about what they want to be able to adapt that as part of their next cycle of decisions.”
