Here at Solarity, I’m in the accounting department, which means I work from an office on my computer making financial projections, tracking expenditures, crunching numbers, counting beans.
I don’t get out in the field, and I don’t meet with our partners and clients. Nevertheless, I can’t help but feel the excitement around our participation in the KentuckyWired statewide broadband initiative.
If you want to know the details about KentuckyWired you can check out this article, but I’ll share with you what KentuckyWired means to me.
- I love seeing how communities are strategically developing goals that align with their needs
- I love feeling the value of the work that we’re doing in bringing positive change to these communities
- I love the feedback we’re getting
- I love that we’re helping communities reach concrete, life-changing goals, whether it’s to improve their local economy, achieve a better standard of living, foster higher education opportunities, or something else
We’re just in the beginning stages, and Kentucky is still working on the fiber-optic backbone (the “middle mile”) that will link everything together. But as Solarity helps our communities to strategically plan the offshoots of that backbone, even from behind a computer screen you can feel the energy.
The shared vision of a broadband future for the state of Kentucky is desirable for everyone, and Solarity is one of the few companies working to bring about that future.
I love being a part of this work, even behind the scenes.
