Solar Focus Spreads the Good News

Join us and MDV-SEIA at the annual Solar Focus Conference in Baltimore, Maryland on November 20th – 21st, a major effort of our Maryland-District of Columbia-Virginia chapter of the Solar Energy Industry Association (MDV-SEIA). It will celebrate the latest solar policy achievements, and focus on how the solar industry can continue its recent policy successes and commercial growth.

Solar Focus brings together solar professionals and industry leaders from across the country to share ideas, build partnerships, and envision the future of solar power. In addition to panels, there will be a Women in Solar Breakfast, job fair, and many more networking opportunities. GreeneHurlocker continues to be a sponsor for this important and influential industry event, and we’ll be hooking you up to the free wifi!

I will be on site to join in the usual spirited discussions about how to promote and grow the role of solar energy in our lives and our businesses.I hope you can join me at the final panel of the conference where I will be speaking on Case Studies in the Utility-Scale Industry.

Look me up when you’re at the Hilton, I’ll be out in the halls and would love to talk with you about the things on your mind and what your company is looking forward to in the next year. If you want more information about MDV-SEIA or to talk about renewable energy development just give me a call, or talk to any of our solar energy and utility lawyers.

November’s Solar Focus Gets Our Attention

The MDV SEIA’s 8th annual Solar Focus conference, the East Coast’s premier solar conference, is slated for November 17 and 18 in Washington, D.C., and we will be there, all in. We will be one of the sponsoring organizations for this outstanding industry conference. In addition, I will be moderating a panel during the meeting covering consumer protection issues in the region.

Energy professionals across the East Coast will be watching this conference for developing issues and industry trends. Organizers expect more than 300 solar industry leaders from the private, public, and nonprofit sectors will gather together to ensure spirited debate and meaningful dialogue, according the Dana Sleeper, executive director.

The Consumer Protection panel I will moderate on the morning of November 18 includes William Reisinger of the Virginia Attorney General’s Office, Elizabeth Stern from the Maryland Attorney General’s Office and Steven Eisenberg from SRECTrade, a Solar Renewable Energy Certificate (SREC) transaction and management firm. We will be discussing actions of state Attorney General offices in pursuing bad actors in the solar market and consumer rights, such as challenges presented by neighbors (especially shade), HOAs, pop ups, and others that infringe upon consumer systems and their ability to become energy-independent.

We look forward to seeing clients and friends at the Hyatt Regency Capitol Hill during the many social functions and educational events. Let us know if you are planning to attend so that we can be sure to keep an eye out for you.
