Consumer Protections for Community Solar

Thursday, June 22, 2017 @ 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Community solar is a rapidly expanding model for increasing solar access and solar deployment. Like all consumer products, however, community solar can raise consumer protection issues.

CESA has produced a new guidebook on consumer protection issues that may arise in community solar projects for residential consumers, and the role states play in ensuring appropriate consumer protections. In this webinar, report authors Diana Chace and Nate Hausman discussed their findings.

This webinar was presented by CESA for the Sustainable Solar Education Project. The Sustainable Solar Education Project, funded through a grant from the U.S. Department of Energy SunShot Initiative, is helping state and municipal officials to ensure distributed solar electricity is equitable and consumer friendly.
