The 2015 Washington State Solar Summit
The Future of Solar in Washington State: Caution: Curves Ahead
October 9-10, 2015
Shoreline Community College
Solar industry personnel kept a close watch on the 2015 legislative session which resulted in the continuation of the status quo. We all know that, with the incentives set to expire in 2016, change is inevitable. The 2015 Solar Summit acknowledges this and will aim to address the growth of solar over the past few years, what the current incentives have achieved, what the solar industry could look like in the near and distant future, how access to solar can proliferate, and how all stakeholders including utilities, manufacturers, installers, advocacy organizations, energy storage manufacturers, educators, and others can work together to forge a healthy future for solar in Washington State.
A lot may happen beginning in January 2016 with the forthcoming short legislative session. How will solar position itself in 2016, 2020 and beyond?
