Community Solar Procurements, Programs and Pricing

June 7-8, 2017 | Golden, Colorado

Utilities are invited to attend this free regional workshop, Community Solar Procurements, Programs and Pricing. Whether you’re first exploring community solar, troubleshooting an existing program or looking for new ways to expand local solar options, this workshop will help you get your program in gear.

Hosted by the SunShot-funded Community Solar Value Project and cosponsored by the Western Area Power Administration Renewable Resource Program and Extensible Energy, LLC, this one and one-half day workshop will help you overcome the key stumbling blocks to utility-led program success, including:

– Assessing in-house and outsourced procurement choices

– Employing strategic design elements that make sense for your utility

– Designing an RFP for quality, economy, and timeliness

– Pricing competitively, while meeting utility needs and addressing risks

– Adding features that add value to customer engagement.

The agenda will feature top speakers from the following organizations:

Community Solar Value Project

Navigant Consulting

Regulatory Assistance Project

Rocky Mountain Institute

Sacramento Municipal Utility District

Kit Carson Electric Co-op

– Tucson Electric Power

– and other best practice utilities from the Western region and beyond.
