Going Big on Solar – Options for Commercial, Government & Nonprofit Customers


Register for this Event  

The gold rush is on in Virginia! Businesses, universities, non-profits, and local governments are taking advantage of low solar prices and innovative financing models to access clean, renewable electricity from the sun. Solar installations in Virginia increased ten-fold in the past year, with most of the new demand coming from large customers like these.

Sierra Club and business leaders have partnered to create this program explaining how commercial customers can save money and meet sustainability goals with on-site or offsite solar arrays. Whether you’re a building owner, a leader in a non-profit, work in local government, or just want to know more, come learn how customers can help the environment and their bottom line with clean, renewable energy!

Speakers will discuss current options for purchasing solar, including onsite (rooftop, parking lots) and offsite (solar farms), using financial models such as low-cost loans, utility-sponsored programs, and power purchase agreements (PPAs).

Speakers:
**Charles Juris, Energy House
**Karen Torrent, Secure Futures LLC
**Niels Crone, Customer First Renewables

Sponsored by Sierra Club Virginia Chapter, Mount Vernon Group, Great Falls Group, Clean Energy for Fairfax Now, Arlingtonians for a Clean Environment and the Ready for 100 Campaign.
