Jennette Gayer did something outside the box. Instead of taking the traditional approach of tackling solar at the state level, she decided to look at how solar policy could help solar installations at a city level. By looking at policies in big and small cities in Georgia, Gayer identified some simple tools to help cities of all sizes get prepared to expedite solar.

About the Author

Beth Bond, the Curator of Green and Sustainable Business News at Southeast Green, is the driving force of Southeast Green. As a Southerner, Bond was tired of hearing about everything "green" happening outside her native region which is what drove her to create the website. Owning her own marketing company for over 15 years and working with sustainability groups, Beth knew the story of sustainability and green resided here in the Southeast. There was just no one place to tell the cohesive story of all the things that are happening in the Southeast. Since relaunching Southeast Green in September 2008, Bond has been establishing even broader liaisons and partners to help continue the story of green and sustainability. Bond serves on a variety of boards and committees in the Atlanta sustainable community. In 2011 she joined the board at Georgia Interfaith Power and Light. She is the Collaboration Chair for the Green Chamber of the South. In December of 2011 the Georgia Solar Energy Association awarded Beth with a Solar Advocate of the Year award. In 2014 Bond was a finalist for the Trident E3 Award presented by the Atlanta Metro Chamber of Commerce. She has also served on host committees for This is Market, River Revival, Earth Hour, Green Law's Environmental Heroes and Get the Lead Out to name a few. Bond spent her formative years in Mobile, Alabama. She graduated from Florida State University and then served in Bouza, Niger as a Peace Corps Volunteer. She is active in her neighborhood and serves on Community Council for District 3, DeKalb County. When not working to better her community she participates in her church where she serves as Co-Chair for the Creation Care committee. She is an avid tennis and college football fan.
