Steven Cossin: Meet Our Team

Q: What is your role on the True South Solar team?

My role is that of a solar installer. I am one of the guys who puts the ladder up, gets on the roof, and physically builds the solar systems on our customers’ roofs. I also handle a plethora of other duties which necessitates a wide range of skills and flexibility.

Q: What’s your favorite part of the job?

I’d say I have two favorite parts actually. First, the satisfaction of knowing that what I am doing is at least a small part of the greater shift we as a people need to make with our overall energy infrastructure. Second, the comradery felt with the rest of the crew. It is a real pleasure to work with such professionals and all around good people!

Q: What’s the most important lesson you’ve learned since joining the team?

I’d have to say that one of the most important things I’ve learned and experienced is that anyone can make a real difference. This company is proof of that!

Q: When did you first start thinking about solar?

Solar has been on my mind in a real way for many years, probably since I was a young teenager. I was a science buff, and we learned about solar in school and I learned more from documentaries all about the possibilities of solar.

Q: What’s your favorite thing to do in the sun?

Well, when I am not working in the sun to harvest its potential, I prefer to be hiking, biking, or traveling. But often enough I find myself lounging at a good coffee shop outside with a good book.
