Clary Franko is a solar community organizer for the company SunCommon. Clary grew up in a solar-powered house nestled in the southern Appalachian Mountains and enjoyed nature as her playground. She was quite disturbed to learn about Mountain Top Removal for coal extraction at an early age, and while attending college in North Carolina, she devoted herself to installing renewable energy projects on campus to lessen the reliance on coal. For the last two years she has run environmental campaigns up and down the East Coast. A favorite quote of Clary's is one by E.B. White, "I arise every morning torn between the desire to save the world and the desire to savor the world. It makes it hard to plan my day." So she is thrilled to be living in Burlington, surrounded by gorgeous mountains and fantastic people while working to blanket the state in solar and move towards a clean energy economy.
