Kirkwood’s appointment further demonstrates his commitment to climate equity and underscores the work Locus does to support its vision for equitable climate solutions.

Richmond, VA – Locus is excited to announce that President and CEO Amir Kirkwood has been appointed to the Virginia Clean Energy Advisory Board by Governor Glenn Youngkin. The Board is responsible for managing a pilot program that provides loans or rebates to households that invest in solar installations or energy efficiency improvements. The program, which is powered by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Low-to-Moderate Income Solar Loan and Rebate Fund, is open to any Virginia resident whose household income is at or below 80 percent of the state median income or regional median income.

“I am honored to serve the Commonwealth of Virginia as a member of the Clean Energy Advisory Board,” said Amir Kirkwood. “Supporting equitable climate solutions is a key pillar of our work at Locus. We partner with systemically under-resourced communities, which often bear the brunt of climate change, to catalyze capital that advances community-led solutions that address the impact of the climate crisis. I look forward to bringing what I’ve learned from these community partnerships to improve energy efficiency alongside my peers on the Board.”

Kirkwood’s term follows that of Locus Executive Director of Impact Lending Bill Greenleaf, who served on the Board for four years, including two years as Vice Chair. Kirkwood joins a distinguished group of energy and policy experts, attorneys, nonprofit leaders, and community  advocates.
