Lacy Cooke loves words. She's written about renewable energy, literature, religion and clean technology, and her work has appeared in The Millions, Bustle and WeWork's Creator as well as here on Inhabitat. After writing about solar modules for years, she decided to get hands-on and is currently spending about a year installing those modules with GRID Alternatives, funded by AmeriCorps. A love for stories is the backbone for all her adventures, and she's currently hearing the stories of people in all four quadrants of her new home in Washington, D.C. She's a California girl who is very open to your recommendation of good Mexican food on the East Coast. If you don't find her on a roof or scribbling words, you'll find her reading, stretching on a yoga mat or spending time with her husband and cat.
