MEW Webinar Series | Challenges vs. Opportunities: Rooftop Solar in the Carolinas

July 21, 2021  |  Webinar 2:00pm  |  Register

The commercial and residential solar industry has become a strong component of the robust clean energy economy in North Carolina. The industry has continued to grow year over year, with increased demand from corporations and homeowners alike across the state. While that growth has been strong and steady, we still face a number of challenges that hinders the industry from reaching its full potential—issues that involve HOAs, industry bad actors, and financial compensation structures. In this webinar, we’ll discuss these challenges and the work that NCSEA and other clean energy advocates are undertaking to address some of them.

Solar Project Development: Case Studies & Best Practices


July 27-28, 2021  |  Online Symposium  |  Register

This EUCI symposium will study several solar project development prototypes, off-take arrangements, and operational scenarios. Case studies will highlight best practices of these power plant development types: build-transfer, merchant build and operated, utility-commissioned, solar-plus-storage, and brownfield. They will examine multiple power sourcing options including load-serving, corporate-contracted, and government-committed supply scenarios. Finally, the program will feature solar’s exceptional scalability, which allows the technology to participate in wholesale electricity markets, deliver power at a distributed level, and convert farmland and abandoned property into cash registers.
