Residential solar technologies are evolving at a fast clip, as are the policies that support solar generation. Expert Doug McKenzie will discuss the latest solar products and technologies that can extend solar’s reach in your life, plus the policies that are advancing or limiting the future of solar in our region, state, and country.

Topics include:

  • Panels & Inverters
  • Electric Vehicles
  • Batteries: Can you be independent from the grid? Even in a power outage?
  • Getting Off Gas: electrification of the systems in your home
  • Community Choice Energy: what CCE is and how it works with solar customers.
