Thanks for sharing, Daryush-- this is such a fascinating topic, and it really goes to show the value of having utilities focus on areas of equity and justice as it relates to their programs from the top down, because the connection here may have been completely overlooked by others if left unexamined. 

What do you find to be the key to taking outcomes of studies like this and putting them into actionable plans that get buy-in from the decision-makers at utilities? Are these aspects of certain plans being prioritized as they should?
