New York Energy Summit

Later this week, U.S. Light Energy President and CEO Mark Richardson will participate in an important discussion on the future of distributed solar during the New York Energy Summit in Albany, New York (Oct 16-18).

The discussion, The Distributed Solar Boom & Why It’s Critical to Fulfilling NY’s New Policies, will focus on New York’s recently enacted Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act’s goal of doubling of distributed solar deployment to 6,000 MW by 2025.

No stranger to the unique needs required for DG solar installation and development, Richardson will share U.S. Light Energy’s experience as a leading community solar developer in the state. Panelists will discuss overall needs in the solar market including:

  • Strategies for sourcing customers, managing subscribers, fine-tuning contract terms, and managing subscriber risks
  • Emerging business models and relationship dynamics between the developer, the utility, local government, and customer
  • Determining the overall savings (or costs) to consumers for participating in distributed solar

The panel will be moderated by Alexandra Wyatt, Policy & Regulatory Manager at Grid Alternatives, and also feature Elizabeth Fish Glynn, Managing Director of Community Solar at BlueWave Solar; Terri Dalmer, Director of Community Solar at CleanChoice Energy; and Allan Telio, Senior Vice President of Community Solar at NexAmp.
