Our Next Seminar & Teleconference

Empowering Consumers with Renewable Energy

Wednesday, December 17, 2014

As renewable energy becomes more affordable and available than ever before, consumers are playing an increasing role in the realization of distributed generation (DG) in their communities. Join us on December 17 for an in-depth discussion about how this consumer empowerment is changing the national energy landscape. Speakers will discuss how net metering and other policies are expanding to support local communities; the major opportunities and challenges associated with integration of DG; how utilities are adapting their business models for this growth; and how cost and local zoning issues should be addressed.
