This project examines a non-profit organization focused on sustainable energy solutions and their efforts to make energy more affordable. Drawing on the concept of energy justice, which has been called a “new cross-cutting social science research agenda, which seeks to apply justice principles to energy policy, energy production and systems, and energy consumption” (Jenkins, McCauley, Heffron, Stephan, & Rehner, 2016), I explore the alignment between the organization's mission statement "to enhance the economic, environmental, and societal benefits of clean and efficient energy use for all people" and its manifestation in operations and decision-making. I provide recommendations and resources that integrates core leadership practices of relationship building and incommensurability.
