Breakout Session: All Solar is Local

May 21, 2014 2:45PM to 3:45PM PDT

Laguna A & B

Local solar programs can dramatically change the landscape for solar deployment within a community. This program brings together three of the more innovative and forward-thinking solar programs in the country, allowing attendees to participate in a facilitated discussion with these communities in a learning network format. Attendees will have the opportunity to break into small groups and hear a five minute “pitch” from the local community followed by ten minutes of discussion. Participants will have time to rotate through all three presentations. At the end of the session, everyone will come back together in plenary and the communities will summarize what attendees thought was interesting, where there were challenges and also identify opportunities to replicate similar programs in other communities.

Speakers:

Laura Sanchez-Rivét
Co-Founder, New Mexico Green Chamber of Commerce

Jason Caudle
Deputy City Manager, City of Lancaster, CA

Mary Leslie
President, Los Angeles Business Council
