SAVE THE DATE: CABA’s Annual Massachusetts “State of Solar” – January 25th, 2018

Join the Climate Action Business Association for their Third Annual Massachusetts State of Solar, which explores current trends and future outlooks for our solar industry:

“Since 2010, we have seen our state’s clean energy economy expand exponentially. As we continue transitioning to a distributive electric grid, where energy is generated and utilized by interconnected customers, it is critical for policy experts, industry professionals, and community advocates to collaborate on our collective vision for its future in our state. What does the future electric grid look like? Where do utilities and solar companies fit into that vision? Ultimately, a successful approach to the future of our solar industry requires coordination among all stakeholders.

The evening will feature a networking reception followed by a panel discussion on the political climate, accomplishments, and challenges for solar energy in Massachusetts.
