GPP Webinar: Solar Carports: Turning University Parking Facilities into Renewable Electricity Plants

Thursday, December 8, 2016
2:00 PM-3:00 PM EST
Register now!

Today, there are an estimated 5,300 colleges and universities in the United States, and together, those campus facilities contain millions of parking spaces. This webinar explores how colleges and universities can transform underutilized parking facilities into solar power generation systems. By installing on-site solar, institutions can better control their energy costs, reduce their carbon footprints, meet stated renewable energy goals, and develop real-world teaching tools. In addition, solar carports shade and protect cars from the elements, reduce parking lot temperatures, and are a highly visible reminder of a school’s commitment to renewable energy.

The webinar will feature two case studies of universities with solar carport projects.

Michigan State University is outfitting five of its parking lots with solar parking bays for a total of 10 megawatts, which are anticipated to meet five percent of the campus' power needs.

Point Loma Nazarene University is home to 620 kilowatts of solar that spans two rooftops and five solar carports. The university financed its solar carports through a 20-year power purchase agreement.

Speakers:

  • Christopher Kent, Program Manager, U.S. EPA's Green Power Partnership
  • Lynda Boomer, Director of Planning, Design and Construction, Michigan State University
  • Trisha Still, Sustainability Officer, Point Loma Nazarene University

GPP Webinar: The Value of Certification and Verification

Wednesday, March 8, 2017
1:00 PM-2:00 PM EST

Register today!

On Wednesday, March 8, 2017, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Green Power Partnership (GPP) will host a webinar with the Center for Resource Solutions (CRS) examining the value of certification and verification in the green power market.

Switching to green power is easy with the right information but it can be difficult for buyers of green power to know whether they are buying credible products from credible suppliers. For this reason, EPA recommends, as a consumer best practice, buying green power products that are third-party certified and verified. Green power products certified by an independent third-party offers consumer a higher level of certainty about the integrity of their purchase.

The Center for Resource Solutions’ Green-e Energy program not only certifies green power products, but also independently verifies the products on an annual basis.

The webinar will review:

  • Why certification is important
  • Verification and marketing compliance review process
  • How CRS sets Green-e standards

Speakers:

  • Christopher Kent, Program Manager, U.S. EPA's Green Power Partnership
  • Sarah Busch, Senior Analyst, Market Development, Center for Resource Solutions
  • Elliott Engelmann, Analyst, Renewable Energy Purchaser Programs, Center for Resource Solutions
