 A meditation on how to increase access to solar power by low income communities, Standing Together in the Sun details the efforts of Melissa Giorgi, a 2012-13 Environmental Ethics Fellow at the Center, to involve the city of San Jose in the University's Solar Decathlon project.  The Decathlon is a contest sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy in which teams from selected universities build a solar-powered house.
