Working with Your Local Electric Utility

Cooperation between local governments and electrical utilities is essential to accelerating broad deployment of renewable energy. Join ICLEI USA and partners to learn how to work with your utility to create improved conditions for bringing renewable energy online. We'll focus on topics related to working with electric cooperatives on solar. Hear directly from a panel of Solar Electric Power Association (SEPA) member electrical utility representatives about the opportunities and limitations of increasing distributed solar electricity, and how they have worked successfully with local governments to implement best practices and policies around solar development and interconnection.
