Event description

Description

GRID Alternatives GLA is proud to announce the fourth event in our Los Angeles Energy and Equity Series (LEEPS), "Our Shared Solar Future: Expanding Access through Community Solar."

Community solar has emerged across the country as a powerful policy option to encourage clean energy equity. The event will introduce attendees to the concept of community solar and its potential to expand solar access to our most vulnerable communities, including those households who face the greatest adoption barriers such as renters. Our panel of experts and advocates will review successful community solar case studies from around the country, with specific focus on programs that deliver benefits to low-income customers. Panelists will then turn focus to California and discuss our state’s recent community solar policy developments, as well as additional steps that must be taken to ensure significant utility bill savings for the households that need it most.

We’re honored to have California Public Utilities Commissioner Martha Guzman Aceves as our Keynote Speaker. Panelist include Ted Bardacke (Executive Director, Clean Power Alliance), Brandon Smithwood (Policy Director, Coalition for Community Solar Access), Anthony Hernandez (Principal Manager, Energy Procurement & Management, Southern California Edison), Marta Tomic (Program Director, Vote Solar), Tom Figel (Policy & Regulatory Manager – Community Solar, GRID Alternatives), and more.
