Solar Consumer Protection Workshop
Thursday, May 17, 2018 @ 8:00 AM - 4:30 PM CST
Through the Sustainable Solar Education Project, CESA conducted a full-day, in-person workshop on solar consumer protection. The workshop helped state officials identify and implement solar consumer protection strategies. The workshop explored a variety of solar consumer protection issues from improper solar system installation to misleading solar savings projections. Participants engaged leading experts and peers from across the country in discussions on state strategies to promote solar consumer protection. Discussions examined community solar consumer protection, solar contract disclosure requirements, the incorporation of quality assurances into program design, and more.
Workshop attendees: We ask that you please fill out a post-workshop evaluation form by Friday, June 1. Travel reimbursement for attendees is contingent upon submission of an evaluation form.
