DGIC Solar Webinar July 19



Join the Distributed Generation Interconnection Collaborative (DGIC) on July 19 for a free webinar on the topic of plug-and-play solar.

To date, the solar interconnection process has involved a narrowly defined set of equipment, installed by professionals in a particular manner. However, new technologies are proposing to radically simplify the construction, wiring, and interconnection of these systems. Learn how these new "plug-and-play" technologies and techniques could deliver equipment and labor cost savings, necessitate changes to interconnection standards and procedures, and even reduce utility effort required for analysis and inspection.

Date and Time: July 19, 2017, 12–1 p.m. Mountain Time

Speakers: Matthew Kromer (Director of Grid Integration, Fraunhofer Center for Sustainable Energy Systems) and Justin Woodard (Principal Engineer, NES New Grid Offerings, National Grid)

Upcoming Webinars on Low-Income Solar

Don't miss out on this two part webinar series from Clean States Alliance on Low-Income Solar.



Low-Income Solar, Part 1: Lessons Learned from Energy Efficiency Programs
   
Thursday, March 23, 1-2pm ET


As states seek to increase the adoption of solar among low-income households and communities, the history of low-income energy efficiency programs provides useful lessons. In this webinar, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory researcher Ian Hoffman will discuss the lessons learned from low-income energy efficiency programs, and how they can be applied to low-income solar programs. Topics covered will include how programs can be tailored to different segments of the low-income population, such as multifamily vs. single-family housing, as well as what obstacles have been encountered and what new solutions are proposed.
 
Panelist: Ian Hoffman, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

Moderator: Warren Leon, Clean Energy States Alliance

Low-Income Solar, Part 2: Using the Tools of Low-Income Energy Efficiency Financing  
   
Thursday, March 30, 1-2pm ET


As states seek to increase the adoption of solar among low-income households and communities, many states are considering employing financing tools that have been used for low-income energy efficiency. In this webinar, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory researcher Greg Leventis will review low-income energy efficiency financing products and discuss how different financing products can address different barriers to low-income energy improvements.

Panelist: Greg Leventis, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

Moderator: Warren Leon, Clean Energy States Alliance
