Solar Energy Trends and Policy (National Webinar) TeleSalonThursday, April 23, 2015 (2:00 PM - 3:00 PM Eastern)
In the last year, the solar energy sector has grown at a tremendous rate. Panel prices have fallen and installation costs are dropping. Employment grew 21.8 percent - adding 31,000 new jobs for a total of 174,000 nationwide. Solar employment is also expected to jump by another 36,000 workers in 2015. Rapidly falling prices and rapidly increasing employment is changing the national conversation on energy policy and fundamentally shifting the way Americans and their political representatives think about clean energy. Understanding these changing market and political dynamics is critical as policies like the tax reform, the Clean Power Plan and state level incentives are currently under debate.
Join E2 and our speakers, Clint Wilder, Senior Editor at Clean Edge; Bryce Smith, CEO of OneEnergy Renewables; and Ryan Abrahams, Senior Energy and Tax Counsel at the Senate Finance Committee, for a discussion on the changing solar energy market, energy policy decisions and what to expect from both in the coming year.
