Solar Economics: The Benefits of Hedging with Solar Power

U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Green Power Partnership
On Wednesday, November 14, 2012, from 1:00 - 2:00 pm (EST), the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Green Power Partnership (GPP) hosted a webinar on "Solar Economics: The Benefits of Hedging with Solar Power." Aided by favorable financing terms and high solar incentives in many markets, large-scale and multi-site solar installations are leading to significant cost savings for customers. By leveraging economies of scale to improve the financial advantages of solar power, solar installations can lead to lower-cost energy that reduces current expenses and hedges against utility price increases. This webinar explored the broader U.S. solar market and pricing context and the decision-making implications for organizations considering solar.
The webinar featured a presentation from the President and co-founder of SoCore Energy, one of the largest solar developers in the U.S. serving multisite retailers, Real Estate Investment Trusts and industrial clients.
