I’m organizing an exciting event that’s coming up in late May — the San Francisco Community Solar Confluence. It’s part of a series of “confluences” presented by the Solar Gardens Institute.
We’ll bring together community-based organizations, neighborhood residents, advocates for renewable energy, solar developers, local officials, and funders of programs for low-income communities and renewable energy projects to learn about community solar models nationwide – and opportunities to bring solar to people everywhere! All are welcome, and the event is free.
We have some great speakers lined up and will be adding more to the list, so check back for more info!
When: Wednesday, May 23, 7 – 9:30 pm
Where: Pacific Energy Center, 851 Howard Street San Francisco, CA 94103
- Joy Hughes, Founder of Solar Gardens Institute
- Erica Mackie, Co-Founder of GRID Alternatives
- Ted Ko, Associate Executive Director of CLEAN Coalition
- Eric Brooks, Campaign Coordinator at Our City (SF)
- Other speaker announcements to come
Discussion and brainstorming will follow
Even before the Confluence, the Local Clean Energy Alliance is holding another exciting event, their 3rd annual Clean Power, Healthy Communities Conference. It’s an all-day event on May 10 — register here!
