Webinar Explores SEPA’s Utility Solar Rankings Report
Learn how utilities across the country are integrating solar power with a free webinar, SEPA Top 10 Utility Solar Rankings Report: Solar Power Fastest Growing Utility Generation Source in 2011, Thursday, June 21, 12 noon, MDT.
This webinar will focus on the Solar Electric Power Association’s key findings, including:
- Utilities are adapting to solar as their fastest growing electricity source.
- For the fourth straight year, utilities integrated a record amount of new solar power, despite the recession.
- Utility-driven solar procurement is vital to rapid solar market expansion.
In 2011, utilities interconnected over 62,500 PV systems. This annual volume of smaller, distributed solar interconnections is unlike anything the utility industry has previously managed, and conservative forecasts indicate that this number will grow to more than 150,000 interconnections in 2015.
Utility executives and renewable program staff, strategic planners, project developers and solar industry stakeholders are invited to join speakers Mike Taylor, SEPA research director, and Becky Campbell, SEPA research manager, to examine how the solar market has changed and what the new trends are going to be.
