Advancing the Value of Solar

With Karl Rábago

Karl Rabago

Tuesday, November 19, 2013

Join us to drink to our successes this fall and learn about changes ahead.

All are welcome!

We welcome Karl Rábago to the stage to share his experiences across the nation advancing the award winning value of solar rate concept that he developed with his team at Austin Energy.

Karl Rábago, Principal at Rabago Energy, LLC, is one of the key developers of the Value of Solar rate that has been adopted by Austin Energy and he's a champion of renewable energy for Texas, and our nation.

Karl is unstoppable.  A mover and a shaker for solar, Karl has been a leader in getting the value of solar tariff (VOST) implemented locally in Austin, and now he's taking it to the road, working like the Johnny Appleseed of solar adoption to help other utilities and communities see the light.

For a sneak peak of a few things Karl has been getting himself into, check out Sparks- his blog.  

Don't miss this Happy Hour event - join us as we savor the taste of what is made possible through hard work and commitment- get ready to be inspired, Austin.
