Panel to Discuss State of Solar in Massachusetts




The fourth annual Massachusetts State of Solar will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., February 7, at Prince Lobel Tye LLP, in Boston. Since 2010, the state’s clean energy economy has expanded exponentially. What does the future electric grid look like? Where do utilities and solar companies fit into that vision? Along with answering these questions, the evening will feature a panel discussion on the political climate, accomplishments and challenges for solar energy in Massachusetts.

Panelists include Senator Sonia Chang-Díaz (D-Boston), Jess Brooks, chief development officer at Sunwealth Solar, Deborah Donovan, senior policy advocate and Massachusetts director of the Acadia Center, and Allison Mond, senior solar analyst at Greentech Media (moderator).

The night will begin with a reception and refreshments, followed by panelist statements and moderator-led questions, and conclude with questions from the audience and open networking.

Cost: $15. Location: 1 International Pl., Boston. For tickets, visit Eventbrite.com.
