From February 10, 2014 to June 30, 2015, the MLP in conjunction with Sustainable Wellesley and the Sustainable Energy Committee orchestrated a "Power to Choose — Solar" campaign and offered rebates to encourage solar adoption. The town granted a total of $115,000 over the course of 16 months. Homeowners Jo and David Lee took advantage of the rebate pro- gram and added solar panels to a home they purchased in 2010. The personal and professional calling: "The Arabic origin of my name is 'shining' or 'luminous,' so perhaps it is destiny that I have spent much of my career in the photovoltaic and solid-state lighting industries." Currently Moneer is the CEO of SolarOne Solutions, Inc., a company that manufacturers grid-independent, solar-fueled public lighting products — including those for bike paths, roadways, bus shelters, park- ing lots, and more.
