Municipal Solar: Opportunities and Challenges
This workshop will be presented by Olivia Campbell Andersen of Renewable Energy Vermont, Chad Farrell of Encore Renewable Energy, and Geoff Urbanik of the Town of Colchester.
Municipal solar energy is an important cost- and carbon-saving option for many municipalities. This workshop will cover the current state policy framework and lay-of-the-land for municipal solar in Vermont, including an update on the state’s net metering rule and the state’s preferred siting criteria. Hear how communities have — and can — structure municipal solar projects that save money and reduce climate pollution. And, get an in-depth overview of how and why one Vermont town made a significant commitment to generating its power from the sun.
We at Green Energy Times think that the VECAN Conference is one of Vermont’s best renewable energy events. We recommend that everyone consider attending.
This year’s conference will again be held at beautiful Lake Morey Resort in Fairlee, Vermont. It will be on Saturday, December 1st from 9 AM to 4:30 PM.
