Community Solar Legislative Forum April 3 In Wilkes-Barre
On April 3 there will be a Community Solar Legislative Forum at the Arnaud C. Marts Center, Room 214 at Wilkes University, 292 S. Franklin Street in Wilkes-Barre starting at 7:00 p.m.
Community solar projects can dramatically expand the opportunities for residents and businesses to participate in the growing solar economy.
In community solar, participants can subscribe to a portion of an offsite solar project and receive credit on their electricity bill for the power produced, just as if the solar panels were on their own roof.
Eighteen states and the District of Columbia have enacted community solar programs.
The General Assembly is now considering legislation to create a community solar program in Pennsylvania-- House Bill 531. Come to this informative Community Solar Legislative Forum to learn more
