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 all communities and households, including 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.

Speakers include:

- California Public Utilities Commissioner Martha Guzman Aceves (Keynote Speaker)

- Ted Bardacke, Executive Director, Clean Power Alliance

- Brandon Smithwood, Policy Director, Coalition for Community Solar Access
