Solar Project Portal Webinar: Site Assessments for Local Governments

Wednesday, November 28, 2018
1:00 PM-2:00 PM ET
Register now!

Understanding solar site opportunities starts with collecting site information and utility data. This information is important when seeking project proposals from developers and is the basis for conducting site assessments to identify the most suitable sites.

On Wednesday November 28, 2018, the U.S. EPA will host a webinar for the Local Government Solar Project Portal, which will cover the key steps for assessing potential solar project sites; describe how to pre-screen the potential sites on your initial list; and explain how to conduct a more in-depth site evaluation of promising locations. It will feature guest speakers from three municipalities who will provide real-world examples of the steps they took as well as lessons learned from their site assessment experiences.

Speakers:

  • Risa Edelman, Program Manager, U.S. EPA Green Power Partnership
  • Mandy La Brier, Director of Energy Management, City of Chicago
  • Ned Noel, Associate Planner, City of Eau Claire
  • Scott Tess, Environmental Sustainability Manager, City of Urbana

Renewable Energy Certificate (REC) Arbitrage Process

Wednesday, January 17, 2018
1:00 PM-2:00 PM EST

Register today!

On January 17, EPA will host a webinar explaining the process of renewable energy certificate (REC) arbitrage. REC arbitrage is a green power procurement strategy used to simultaneously decrease the cost of renewable electricity use, while still allowing the organization to substantiate renewable electricity use and improve their environmental metrics. Electricity consumers often use this strategy when installing self-financed renewable electricity projects or purchasing renewable electricity directly from a project through a power purchase agreement (PPA). This webinar will explain REC arbitrage and present two case studies.

Presenters:

  • Christopher Kent, Program Manager, U.S. EPA's Green Power Partnership
  • Kevin Hagen, Director Corporate Responsibility, Iron Mountain
  • Jeremy King, Director of Sustainability & Campus Improvement, Denison University
