Angel Rodriguez joined the California Housing Partnership in April 2022. As a Sustainable Housing Program Associate, he assists partner agencies and stakeholder groups in the implementation of sustainable housing and clean energy programs that increase renewable energy in low-income communities.
Prior to joining the Partnership, Angel worked as the Policy and Business Development intern with GRID Alternatives, a certified non-profit organization, where he supported the policy team with customer participation in community solar, rooftop solar, workforce development, environmental justice advocacy, and energy storage. His work at GRID Alternatives supported low-income households and tribal communities with solar power projects that met community needs and contributed to long-term environmental and economic benefits. For the California Self-Generation program and the Clean Mobility equity program, Angel actively communicated feedback along with various jurisdictions to enhance these programs and community involvement.
He also served as the spatial analyst for a group proposal on the Vacaville Rocky Hill Trail which engaged community members, youth coalitions, and the city council in designing a recreational trail for a predominantly low-income and Latino community.
Angel earned his B.S. in Sustainable Environmental Design with a minor in Chicano Studies from the University of California, Davis in 2021.
