Enrique “Enjo” Salonga – Trajectory Energy Partners

Enrique “Enjo” Salonga, Intern

Enjo grew up in the Philippines where he witnessed the growing environmental issues in his village. His childhood, coupled with academic coursework and research experiences, shaped his desire to advance his education to protect and restore the health of struggling communities.

A native to Waukegan IL, he continues to learn about issues of environmental injustice occurring in his community. He later developed a passion for economics and seeks to use it as a tool to conduct economic research and environmental policies that will lead communities to a sustainable future. 

Enjo is currently pursuing a B.A. in Economics and Environmental Studies at Lake Forest College and conducting a Senior Thesis to assess the energy equity implications of the Illinois Solar for All Program.

Before joining Trajectory Energy, Enjo interned at Axiom Consulting Partners and Wintrust Financial Corporation as well as served as a research assistant for the Economics department of Lake Forest College. He seeks to apply his analytical skills to support the Trajectory Energy team.
