Description
SOLAR POWER FOR CALIFORNIA LOCAL GOVERNMENT AGENCIES

Presenter: Mark Weeks, URS Corporation

Overview: Solar power is the conversion of sunlight into electricity or useful thermal energy. Implementation of solar power has been growing tremendously in recent years due largely to technological developments and cost reductions in manufacturing and installation. Other drivers have also contributed to growth in solar power, such as financial incentives and requirements for electric utilities to procure specific amounts of eligible renewable energy generation. With the changing landscape of energy markets and various pathways to onsite self-generation, several local government agencies throughout California have elected to develop solar power projects to meet local energy needs.
Come to the APWA Meeting to learn more about opportunities in the dynamic solar industry. Discussion topics will cover technical, economic, and permitting aspects of solar power. We will hear a presentation from Mark Weeks of URS Corporation. He specializes in Alternative Energy and has recently completed an Alternative Energy Feasibility Study for the City of Santa Maria.
