7:00-7:30AM Registration and Networking Breakfast
8:00-8:30AM Engaging discussion
Solar policies secured by Fresh Energy and its partners have stimulated a 113 percent increase in solar energy proposals in Minnesota in the last two years. But many projects are stalled – and at this point in Minnesota’s solar market development, there is unmet demand from home and small business owners and low income communities. What is needed to bring solar to all Minnesotans regardless of income level and utility provider?
Jon Wellinghoff and James Tong, co-authors of a recent game-changing article in Utilities Fortnightly, see a new market for solar that will put rooftop solar within reach for more people while managing disruptions to our current energy system. Join this conversation about Solar for All, the potential for innovation – and the peril of blocking access to clean, economical solar energy.
This will be the final event in the Power Pairings Breakfast Series.
