Timothy is the co-founder and General Manager of Cooperative Energy Futures (CEF), an energy efficiency and community-owned clean energy cooperative serving members across Minnesota since 2009. CEF equips members across the state to build socially just climate solutions that grow community wealth and power. CEF has financed and developed 6.9MW (~$16M) of low-income accessible community solar that is cooperatively owned and operated across urban, suburban, and rural Minnesota, offsetting the utility bills of over 800 member households for the next 25 years. Cooperative Energy Futures seeks to set the standard for putting community back into community solar through projects that ensure community ownership, enable participation by low-income communities and communities of color, and create pathways into the solar workforce for local community members. Timothy has also helped build local control over energy decision-making in Minneapolis through the Minneapolis Clean Energy Partnership as a member of the partnership's Energy Vision Advisory Committee and supports energy democracy nationally through the People's Solar Energy Fund and the PowerShift Network.
