Register for the next #SolarChat on 11/12/14 – Solar Politics, Policies, and Advocacy
Wednesday, 11.12.14 – 11 a.m. PST, 2 p.m. EST
Solar’s rapid growth is fueled and challenged by a myriad of federal and state dynamics. With the ITC sunset looming and anti-net metering struggles across the country, it’s time we powered up a united solar front in the realms of politics and advocacy.
Join the conversation to enlighten newly elected politicians, add an even louder voice to the climate change chorus and flex our political muscles. We’ll gain a deeper understanding of the options and tools we can all use to collectively shine a very bright solar industry light in the battles ahead.
