Leading municipal utilities and co-ops are going solar— should you?


December 11th at 1pm ET

Save My Seat!

Utilities across the country are facing an inflection point as aging power plants become increasingly costly to maintain and the price of distributed, alternative electric generating resources continues to fall. 

Some leading utilities are exploring photovoltaics (PV) as a solution, particularly where cost competitiveness and state or local decarbonization goals make solar a strong fit over retrofitting or rebuilding existing plants. In fact, in 2020 over 10.0 GW of utility PV are expected to come online in the U.S.

This free webinar will discuss the following:  

  • Optimizing cost savings with solar
  • How solar impacts ancillary services
  • Local economic impact of solar
  • Emerging trends in public demand and public policy
  • How public power solar adoption compares to IOUs
  • A case study by Taunton Municipal Lighting Plan
