So Others Might Eat (SOME) is an interfaith, community-based service organization that exists to help and support residents of our nation’s capital experiencing homelessness and poverty.

In late 2021, Sol Systems completed a 915 kW community solar installation on the rooftop of FedEx Express Eckington Place station in Washington, D.C. FedEx is allocating a portion of the electricity bill credits generated by the solar installation, along with supplemental cash donations to local nonprofit SOME (So Others Might Eat) to offset the annual electricity costs of two SOME facilities. Sol will volunteer employee time to SOME throughout the life of the project.
