Illinois Renewable Energy at a Crossroads: Why 2013 will be a make or break year.
March 11, 2013
The Chicago Clean Energy Alliance, in partnership with the Illinois Coalition to Advance Renewable Energy, Wind on the Wires, the Illinois Solar Energy Association, Clean Energy Trust, Clean Energy Illinois PAC, Environmental Law & Policy Center and hosted by Baker & McKenzie, invite you to attend a critical discussion about why renewable energy development in Illinois is in jeopardy – and how you can help.
As part of its quarterly networking series, CCEA is excited to partner with these important clean energy organizations for a discussion of why critical legislation is needed to “fix” the state Renewable Portfolio Standard and why everyone supportive of clean energy needs to get involved. For a primer on the issue, please consider reading this informative article from David Roberts (Read More).
Look for more details on the event and panelists soon. In the meantime, please save the date and plan to attend this important event.

Welcome to our last minute panel addition Lisa Albrecht from Solar Service, Inc.
Lisa Albrecht previously served on the ISEA Board of Directors from 2007 thru 2010 and has worked for Solar Service for 6.5 years. Lisa’s knowledge of solar along with experience training and speaking has made her a recognized leader in Illinois solar. She organized Illinois Solar Energy Association solar tour for four years and is currently working on permitting and policy issues in Illinois municipalities to pave the way for an easier installation process. She has supervised numerous commercial and residential installations including some of the largest installed solar in the state. From her first science fair project in the 7th grade, to lobbying in the halls of the U.S. Congress and Illinois State Senate, Lisa’s passion for the environment is only superseded by her commitment to providing families, small and large companies with the best the sun has to offer.
