The Shocking Impact of Boring Energy Policy

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

How can communities seize the opportunities of a decades-old energy system being rocked by distributed power? We will explain how boring-sounding policy and regulatory decisions about "net metering" and the grid are shaping the future of the electricity system, and how these boring-sounding issues have serious implications for an equitable energy economy. Participants will leave armed with knowledge of key issues and prepared to hear stories of communities taking charge, in "Grassroots Community Meets Energy Technocracy."
