On February 26, 2015 3-4 pm EST, through its participation in the SunShot Solar Outreach Partnership, APA will present a free webinar exploring how communities can use solar development to enhance resilience.
In this webinar, local energy planner Stephan Schmidt will highlight a number of potential connections between solar energy use and community resilience and present a series of recommendations for local governments. Then, hazards planning expert Jim Schwab, AICP, will discuss opportunities to improve energy security and reduce economic uncertainty by integrating solar development into hazard mitigation and post-disaster recovery planning efforts. Finally, clean energy finance expert Rob Sanders will discuss planning and financing clean, resilient power projects (i.e., using solar energy systems with on-site storage to power critical infrastructure).
