Community Solar Evolved
OLD DESCRIPTION: As renewable energy gains popularity and the solar industry continues to grow, utilities are increasingly taking advantage of community solar to proactively engage their customers. Attendees will learn how utilities nationwide are voluntarily using community solar as a means to increase customer choice and offer renewable energy programs to a broad range of customers, while maintaining positive customer relationships and sharing in solar’s economic benefits. The speakers will describe customer engagement strategies that keep participant satisfaction high while reducing programmatic risk for the utility. Attendees will gain a better understanding of how community solar can be leveraged not only as a long-term customer retention strategy, but also as a low-risk means to achieve environmental and sustainability goals. The panel will also discuss ways that utilities have used community solar as a tool to strengthen relationships with community decision-makers. Attendees will leave with an understanding of how to leverage community solar to improve relationships and provide sustained, tangible success to utility decision-makers.
